Supranational citizenship

Lynn Dobson

Published by Manchester University Press

Europe in Change MUP

  • Brings together political theory with debates about European integration, international relations and the changing nature of citizenship and offers a coherent and innovative theorisation of a citizenship independent of any specific form of political organisation
  • Relates that conception of citizenship to topical issues of the European Union: democracy and legitimate authority; non-national political community; and the nature of the supranational constitution
  • Argues that citizenship should no longer be seen as a status of privileged membership, but instead as an institutional role enabling individuals' capacities to shape the context of their lives and promote the freedom and well-being of others
  • Draws on and develops ideas found in the work of the philosopher Alan Gewirth
  • Newly available in paperback
  • Winner of the UACES Best Book prize for 2006
