THIS CHAPTER EXPLORES, through a discussion of one instance, how the principal categories of the Lockean narrative can shape the context for the understanding of and response to political injury. In the case of much Western response to the Beijing massacre the conceptualisation of man and the state is particularly important, as is the related articulation of the realms of ethics and politics. The following discussion of the Beijing killings also questions the adequacy of the terms of the debate between citizenship rights and human rights

after years of disregard and neglect. Many in this field now consider an education programme dedicated to citizenship to be a highly important factor contributing to the development of the ‘civil society’ and the preservation of the liberal state’s stability. 4 However, conforming to a traditional liberal stance, the writings of most of these scholars evince a rather narrow approach regarding the essentials of this democratic education. The core concept conveyed by this area of education, according to the majority of the liberalist school

Where civic nationalism prevails, the focus is on the individual rather than any collective ethnic identity: In a liberal

:32 238 Expanding citizen science e­ nvironmental damage often falls on affected communities, as opposed to the polluters themselves (Mah 2017). In an age of post-­truth and alternative facts, questions of data, proof, and even citizenship have become especially acute. How can people who live with toxic injustice create their own facts about pollution? How can non-­scientists make their alternative data count in environmental disputes? Can citizen science be expanded to include people whose citizenship is disputed? Can the practices of citizen science ever create

to perform, GENDER STUDIES 59 and ‘frames the very definition of politics, and by default, what does not constitute politics’ (Rai 2000: 156). From an analytical framework, which challenges the public/private divide and insists upon experience as a valid form and basis of knowledge, there emerges a radical visualization of politics itself. This visualization sees the universalized language of politics, of citizenship and rights for example, as marking the erasure of structurally embedded differences between individuals. As Blacklock and Macdonald (2000: 19) argue

such as ‘stakeholding’ and ‘the Third Way’ may be transient, a core modernising version of citizenship has been remarkably consistent since the early 1990s. Consequently, the Third Way theory offered by Giddens, like that of stakeholding before it, has been appropriated by New Labour and other Centre-Left actors only selectively, where it is of use in developing this enduring

about a ‘conflict of civilisations’ pitting the West against ‘illiberal’ cultures, and a sense of a diffuse but multifaceted threat to French national identity. Fewer attempts, however, have been made to take seriously the debate surrounding the headscarves affair as a form of philosophical engagement with general principles of toleration, neutrality, and citizenship.1 The headscarves debate has generally been perceived as too embedded in a particular socio-political context – too French, in a way – to be compatible with any familiar or plausible understanding of

political and policy debates where the radical needs of these communities can be expressed, heard and addressed systemically.
