NIEDERBERGER, Andreas. Reinventar la ciudadanía : Acerca de la conexión entre democracia, derechos y legitimidad en el orden político global. Eidos [online]. 2012, n.17, pp.134-167. ISSN 1692-8857.

This article starts by reconstructing the reasons for the modern focus on citi-zenship as a major guarantee for legitimacy - arguing that citizenship is intricately linked to a republican form of political order. In its second part this paper shows that under the current conditions of globalization citizenships creates or maintains a transnational multi-level order which prevents other persons and polities from realizing (full) citizenship, and even contributes to direct violations of legitimate claims of non-citizens. The third part of the article critically discusses proposals by Archibugi, Owen and Baubóck, how to rethink transnational citizenship or equivalent forms of participation and control. And in its final part it advocates linking the conception of constellational citizenship to a specific form of trans-national democracy. With such a link citizenship could continue to be the key factor for legitimacy.

Keywords : Citizenship; globalization; (transnational) democracy; republicanism.
