Critical Republicanism

Chapter 7 puts forward a normative defence of liberty as non-domination, which does not support a ban on hijab, but seeks to equip all individuals with culturally-neutral, autonomy-related skills, and give them opportunities for effective political voice, so that they can resist domination, oppression, manipulation and indoctrination in their private and social life. Contra laïcistes, individuals should be allowed to live non-autonomous lives, but they should be empowered to resist the multiple forms that domination can take: public and private, secular and religious, ethnocentric, and patriarchal. To this end, critical republicans advocate both universal autonomy-promoting education and wide opportunities for democratic voice and participation.
