Citizenship in Britain

Derek Heater

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the British Idealists's thoughts on citizenship. For most of the time when the British Idealists wrote about citizenship they were thinking of that status and feeling for men in a nation-state. Initially, they gave little thought to women as citizens. However, by the turn of the century, Jones and Bosanquet became convinced of the justice of the women's cause. When it came to any consideration of transnational citizenship the British Idealists were faced with the difficulty of the Hegelian element in their philosophy. The chapter then considers the wartime civic spirit; Beveridge and the welfare state; and Marshall's three strands.
