The Origins, Nature, Political Dynamics, and Outcomes of Special Status Arrangements

  • Susan J. Henders


Collective identity claims play an important role in the constitution of political power, whether in the making of states or of special status arrangements. This political side of collective identity is important to understanding citizenship deficits and political conf licts in all states. It is particularly central to making sense of the political effects of the modern territorial state and citiz enship model in states with territorialized minority communities. This chapter continues to develop an analytical framework for the study of special status arrangements, a task begun in chapter two. The focus now turns to the concepts, indicators, and propositions needed to analyze the origins, nature, political dynamics, and justice and order outcomes of these important modalities of the contemporary state.
