Responsible Citizens, Irresponsible States

Should Citizens Pay for Their States' Wrongdoings?

Avia Pasternak

  • Develops an innovative framework for the idea of “intentional citizenship” to explain citizens' collective action and responsibility within and to their state
  • Broad in scope, the book offers in-depth analysis of citizen responsibility under authoritarian regimes, filling an important lacuna in contemporary political philosophy about political obligations
  • Demonstrates how the conditions of intentional citizenship can be fulfilled in real political contexts
