Title

Citizenship and the boundaries of the acknowledged community: Identity, affiliation and exclusion

Author

Kabeer, Naila

Description

This paper examines the interaction of two forms of citizen belonging and the rights and responsibilities associated with each form.  It argues that the notions of citizenship constructed in the West are inappropriate in post-colonial contexts where pre-existing differences within the population have been influenced by colonial power.  The author proposes three themes for future research into inclusive citizenship in the South.
