Abstract
Članek poudarja, da teoretske razprave o demokraciji podcenjujejo pomen odnosa med nacionalizmom in državljanskimi pravicami in so zato odgovorne za zapostavljenost teh dveh temeljnih pojmov. Razumevanje državljanskih pravic v demokratični teoriji ni bilo nikdar omejeno na zakonski ali pravni položaj ljudi in njihovega (polnopravnega) članstva v skupnosti. Državljanske pravice poleg politične vključujejo tudi kulturno razsežnost. Zgodnje klasične teorije so kulturno razsežnost žal in iz razumljivih razlogov zanemarjale. Običajne kritike klasičnega pristopa so poudarjale, da je treba pasivno sprejemanje državljanskih pravic zamenjati z aktivno vlogo, ki bi vključevala državljanske odgovornosti in sposobnosti. Članek obravnava širše razumevanje državljanskih pravic, ki vključuje tudi kompleksno idejo kulturnega pluralizma v sodobnih družbah. Poskuša identificirati različna zgodovinsko določena pojmovanja državljanskih pravic in nacionalnosti v Evropi in njihove posledice za morebiten razvoj the načel v smilsu evropskega in globalnega državljanstva. Avtor pri tem izhaja iz sodobnih libearalnih razumevanj, ki poudarjajo, da si državljani v demokratični družbi delijo kulturno določene odgovornosti do drugih državljanov in da mora konsistenten pojem demokratičnih državljanskih pravic to upoštevati.

Abstract:
The article argues that the theoretical discourses concerning democracy underestimated the relevance of the relationship between nationalism and democratic citizenship and are thus largely responsible for leaving these two crucial concepts up in the air. Understanding of citizenship in democratic theory was never limited to the legal or formal status of a person(s) or his/her (their) full membership in a particular community. Citizenship contains a dimension of wider cultural identity along with the political one. The early classical theory of citizenship, unfortunately and for obvious reasons, did not pay much attention to the cultural dimension of citizenship. Most common critiques of the classical approach already pointed out that the passive acceptance of citizenship should be replaced by an active role, which would include civic responsibilities and civic virtues. This article elaborates the broader understanding of the concept of citizenship, which also includes the complex notion of cultural pluralism which is at the disposal of modern societies. Further effort is directed toward identifying different historically conditioned constructs of democratic citizenship and nationality, in particular, in Europe and their implications for the potential unfolding of global and European citizenship, respectively. The argumentation that follows rests on contemporary liberal arguments focused on the view that citizens in a democratic society share culturally defined responsibilities toward other citizens and that a consistent concept of democratic citizenship will have to accommodate this relevant fact.
