This book provides a basic understanding of democratic citizenship through use of case studies. These case studies illustrate the extent to which ordinary citizens are controlling their common future. The book provides theoretical and evidence based findings on the complexities of citizenship in a capitalistic-republican setting. It offers new theoretical frameworks on reparation and democratic citizenship.
