Social Citizenship and Cultural Citizenship. The Role of Social Rights in Promoting Cultural Citizenship

Luca Mori


Through a brief reconstruction of the debate on social rights, the first part of the article aims at problematizing the general distinction between social and cultural citizenship together with their mutual connections and overlapping. It is argued that, far from being conceivable as impermeable boundaries, the separations between cultural and social rights are rather porous and flexible. In its second part, the article tackles more specifically the problem, focusing on the particular European conception of cultural citizenship. In its conclusion the role of a universalist system of education for the full enjoyment of cultural citizenship is highlighted.
