In Defence of Multinational Citizenship

At the beginning of the 21st century, there is a pressing need to develop new forms of citizenship to meet demands for self-determination advanced by substate nations and indigenous peoples. In Defence of Multinational Citizenship responds to this challenge by making a compelling case for a new form of multinational citizenship. Such a conception would provide equal recognition to the citizenship regimes of state and substate nations through a democratic argument for self-determination at the substate level, and a revised conception of state sovereignty that is divided and shared.
