Although the democratic society may be traditionally viewed as a polity which is grounded on ideas of ‘monochrome’ citizenship, the ‘politics of recognition’ cannot merely be neglected by democratic theory. Since the EU's Member States attach a great deal of importance to the ‘trinity of unity’ — unitary force, people, and territory — the demand of non-citizen residents for participation and recognition in political matters poses a threat or a problem to ideas of such unity. Claims made by those who comprise the minority regarding cultural recognition and socio-political inclusion have to be taken into account for democracy to further develop. However, nationals of third countries are granted only minimal benefits and rights even if barriers have been gradually removed. This chapter analyzes how the third country nationals make up a significant part of the European community, and whether they should be allowed equal rights and opportunities.

Keywords:   democratic society, monochrome citizenship, recognition, third countries, non-citizen residents, unity, rights, socio-political inclusion, cultural recognition
