Institutions and democratic citizenship. [Axel Hadenius] -- Hadenius examines the nature and role of democratic citizenship, the conditions necessary for its development, and its relationship to the key democratic institutions of the modern state. Divided into two parts, this highly informative work first contributes to the debate on democracy's preconditions, then explores the historical development of state structures.

Its primary conclusion is that democracy is not the product of social and economic forces, yet, to a greater extent, it is the consequence of prevailing institutional conditions, i.e. the nature of the state.

In India, the idea of democracy came with colonial rule but conferred subjecthood. In her recent book, Immigration and Democracy, Sarah Song defends a theory of democratic political membership according to which noncitizen immigrants can become members of a political community by participating in shared institutions.

Democratic citizenship is defined here as participation in popular collective action and engagement with polit-ical leaders and institutions, including between elections and within a rule of law.
