Abstract

This chapter examines the different models of citizenship associated with republicanism and argues in favor of a hybrid and composite notion of republican citizenship. It views citizenship as a means to participate in political procedures but contends that such participation does not exhaust the rights and legal status that come with citizenship. More specifically, it considers three legal modes of democratic citizens in relation to freedom, civil association, the common good and equal participation: ‘citizen agents’, ‘citizen managers’ and ‘citizen leaders’. It also proposes a rethinking of the rule of law through a republican lens to address the problematic of democratic citizenship today.
