Identifies one thread running through Balibar’s career: the question of how, in the absence of the certainties provided by universal history, mechanical materialism, class essentialism, ethnic unity, natural nations, or territorial fixity, a political subject and social collectivity manages to emerge, hang together, and act in the world, whether during or after struggles for emancipation and collective self-determination. “Citizenship” is one name that Balibar assigns to this political problem and phenomenon. But one might also locate the question of citizenship within the more general problematic of ‘solidarity’ (and vice versa).
