12 Jan In Defense of Multinational Citizenship

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the need to develop new forms of citizenship to meet demands for self-determination advanced by substate nations and indigenous peoples is increasingly pressing. In responding to this challenge, this book defends a form of multinational citizenzhip that provides equal recognition to the citizenship regimes of both state and substate nations. The authors develop a democratic argument for self-determination at the substate level and a revised conception of state sovereignty that is divided and shared. Through selected case studies, they present an alternative multinational model of citizenship which takes into account existing liberal nationalist and cosmopolitan theories of citizenship and self-determination.
