Market Citizenship
Experiments in Democracy and Globalization



200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

What is the future of citizenship in the 21st century? How will it fuse with today's concerns of globalization and the market? Citizenship is now a key battleground in the fight over the direction of personal and political morality, domestic and global policy, social justice and the spread of violence across the world. Drawing on a rich fund of empirical material, the author analyzes a new paradigm of social relations: market citizenship.

As a compelling account of the past and future of citizenship, this book:

  • Provides a comprehensive and authoritative view of citizenship, from classical Athens to contemporary issues
  • Links citizenship to topical and practical concerns such as 9/11 and the increase in cynicism
  • Develops a new analysis of why self-interest is now seen as central to citizenship
  • Demonstrates how market models of governance are now being used in real-life experiments with democracy, the environment, and globalization
  • Shows how the public sector is essential for driving change
