Comparing Regimes of Secularity, Citizenships, and Fields of Muslimness
This chapter is based on the idea that the modern nation-state is founded on myths and concepts: citizenship involves translating between the level of imaginaries and the people as a collective. The nation-state is a collective structure based on the idea of the nation, an articulation of the “people” who belong to the nation and a positioning toward the nation-state through rights and duties. All these featuress are to be mirrored in the principle of citizenship and its different aspects: the ideal and utopian nation and its cultural and moral content, the pragmatic mechanism of inclusion and exclusion on which management of people is based, and citizenship as a governing tool that makes clear the connection between people and nation.
