identities were constituted through residence in the “home” state) is likely to be more densely dependent on the autonomy and well-being of the polity than the well-being of second generation emigrants. In this respect, the general notion of “stakeholding” is still playing the pivotal normative role but – and this is the point I would stress – ACS is now revealed as a principle for determining membership of the citizenry and not authorial membership

to modernity which can steer a course between the increasingly powerful claims of science, and the cultural needs of the life-world. Karl Ameriks has talked in this respect of the contemporary failure to ‘bridge the gap between private idealistic visions and an analytically rigorous but narrow focus on the latest scientific developments’ (Ameriks 2000 p. 268). Why bridging this gap matters can begin to be made clear by the following, and will concern us in the rest of the Conclusion. One of the consequences to be drawn from the Romantic heritage is that claims that

reasons to be suspicious of any theory of citizenship that hinges mostly on process. In this respect, stakeholder citizenship is a thicker variant of constitutional patriotism. Constitutional patriotism is grounded in a kind of faith in constitutional democracy. Stakeholder citizenship adds a material element – the individual and collective interest in self-governance. Both are elementally civic, with no social or cultural referents

Honohan's interpretation of ASC that aims to blunt the differentiation from the all citizenship stakeholders (ACS) principle that I have tried to sharpen. According to Honohan, “the all subjected account … may define membership of the demos more clearly on the basis of a single principle, but the account of citizenship needs to be pluralist, mainly by building in a temporal cushion with respect to subjection” (p. 157). But she

A pluralist theory of citizenship
Rainer Bauböck

current international state system is deeply flawed in this respect. It is designed to reduce the duty of states to justify their decisions towards those on whom they impact outside their territorial borders and boundaries of citizenship. At most, it supports duties of justification towards other states. The representation of externally affected interests depends, then, on these being effectively represented by a government that has the power to

responses to the world which are based on more than what the sciences can explain in terms of deterministic German Idealism and early German Romanticism 55 laws is still relatively uncontentious in many areas of philosophy, but how far does this take one in terms of metaphysical commitments, for example, to the idea that nature in itself is inherently subjective, and thus ‘unconditioned’ in some respect? In the face of the ecological crisis we are perhaps less likely to reject such ideas out of hand and are perhaps even able to understand the arguments of philosophers

's death: ‘I remember I have dined many times in the Lumumba student hall named after him in the 1990s without knowing anything about this piece of black history in Belgrade’ (Veličković 2012 : 172–3; see Iveković 2006 ). 20 A 1,400-word obituary of Guberina, published by the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in 2005, positions him as a linguist conversant with Charles Bally, Noam Chomsky and Ferdinand de Saussure, and founder of the respected Phonetics Institute, but has no space for his postcolonial

Some questions for Rainer Bauböck

with respect to who is entitled to citizenship and why are very close. Let me add that I applaud the fact that, unlike many political theorists, Bauböck does not view the political world solely through the lens of the modern state. He explicitly regards municipalities and other entities exercising extensive jurisdictional authority over a territorial space as “polities” or “political communities” whose members should be seen as citizens

connotations. Like verbal irony, musical irony clearly relies on a whole series of contextual assumptions which are not fixed and which change historically, but once one accepts that meaning is never atomistic, but always contextual, music can function in an analogous manner to words in this respect. Beethoven’s String Quartet op. 135 functions in a metalinguistic manner in its last movement by using closely related musical material both to ask an apparently serious question about life and death, and to answer it in an essentially humorous manner. Beethoven wrote the words

employment in Canouan. One former senior manager at the resort was of the opinion that relations between the local population and other Vincentians working on the island were a major source of intra-state tensions – the (main island) Vincentian employees felt exploited by Canouan islanders, who they claim rack up rates for poor-quality accommodation. Canouan islanders resent what they see as little respect
