Abstract

In general, the realization of major principles and dimensions of citizenship, especially with regard to people's rights, entitlements, and obligations, is largely determined by the nature of the state, which varies depending on its socio-historical context. It is argued in this article that the recent decades have witnessed a fundamental shift in the nature of the state worldwide, based on neoliberal assumptions, policies, and programs. Focusing mainly on developing countries, the article examines the major tenets of such a neoliberal state, especially with regard to its policy preferences and reorientations, and evaluates its implications for democratic citizenship in these countries. It concludes by exploring some policy alternatives for the revival of such a citizenship.
