The concept of citizenship is ambiguous. It is sometimes understood as nationalitè (state citizenship), and sometimes as democratic citizenship. The two concepts obviously do not coincide, but the difference has rarely been explicated. As I will argue, the two concepts follow a different normative logic because they are embedded in different normative background systems, i.e. the international system of statehood as concerns state citizenship, and the liberal background rules of the principle of popular sovereignty as concerns democratic citizenship. Having separated the two concepts, I will explore some of the implications that the background rules of liberal democratic self-government have for the democratic inclusion of immigrants.
