Citizenship and colonialism
Tendayi Bloom pages -


The core ideals of liberal citizenship are compelling, but they are often lost in the real-world systems ostensibly built upon them. One underlying reason for this is the relationship between the coming of liberal citizenship and the period of colonisation, slavery and revolution. Unpicking the history of this relationship is therefore crucial for our understanding of the limitations of contemporary notions of liberal citizenship - and the possibilities for fixing it. The aim of this article is to make a contribution to this task.
