|Title: ||Inclusive citizenship : realizing the potential|
|Authors: ||Lister, Ruth|
|Issue Date: ||2006|
|Abstract: ||Citizenship has been described as a ‘momentum concept’ (Hoffman, 2004).
One important development over the past decade has been the various ways
in which scholars and activists have developed citizenship’s inclusionary
potential. The first part of the article explores these developments in general
terms with regard to the values underpinning inclusive citizenship; the
implications of the notion of cultural citizenship; and the theorization of
differentiated forms of citizenship, which nevertheless appeal to universalist
principles. These principles provide the basis for the citizenship claims of
people living in poverty, a group largely ignored in citizenship studies. Other
lacunae have been disability and, until recently, childhood. The second part
of the article discusses how citizenship studies has reworked the concept in a
more inclusionary direction through the development of a multi-tiered analysis,
which pays attention to the spaces and places in which lived citizenship is
practised. It focuses in particular on the intimate and domestic sphere, with
particular reference to debates around care and citizenship, and on the interconnections
between the intimate/domestic and the global, using ‘global care
chains’ and ecological citizenship as examples.|
