    Abstract

    The new book shows how citizenship, its meaning and form, have become a vital site of contestation. While many minority groups struggle to redefine the rights of citizenship in more pluralized forms, the responsivbilities of citizenship are being reaffirmed by democratic governments concerned to maintain the common political culture underpinning the nation. In this context, one of the central questions confronting contemporary states and their citizens, is how recognition of socio-cultural and ethno-national 'differences' can be integrated into universal conceptions of citizenship that aims to secure equality for all. As a result equality policies have become a central aspect of contemporary European public policy. The debate about equality and intersectionality has been a central concern in recent feminist theory. The need to recognize diversity amongst womnen and work with the concept of 'intersectionality' has become widespread amongst political theory.
