The Future of Social Citizenship

The Future of Social Citizenship

(p.289) 9 The Future of Social Citizenship
In The Name of Liberalism

Desmond King (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

King concludes by summarizing his major themes and arguing that the policies examined in his book are significant due to their influence on the definition of citizenship, its development in liberal democratic polities, and the duties that such citizenship is said to entail. He explores how the social policies examined in his work have contributed to the implicit boundaries of the public and private as well as the historical balance of rights and obligations. King offers four typologies that aim to capture the ways in which citizenship has historically balanced rights and responsibilities: as a loss of certain rights altogether, citizenship duties, coercive obligations such as workfare and, finally, paternalism.
