About this book

The greening of citizenship, the state and ideology has created both opportunities and bottlenecks for progressive political movements. Scerri argues that these are pursuing justice by making holistic demands for: fair distribution and status recognition, adequate representation and effective participation.

Reviews

"For scholars and students of environmental political theory and citizenship studies, Greening Citizenship

offers a productive and insightful approach to understanding contemporary transformations of citizenship and makes a significant contribution to an increasingly diverse field of study." - Environmental Values

"In a review of dominant political and social theory since T.H. Marshall, Scerri takes inventory of culture, politics, and institutions in Western democracies, in order to conceptualise better a fuller, more productive, and democratic politics of sustainability... The book offers a fresh path through the sea of contemporary critical political and social theory that leads to a better understanding of reasons and means to be constructive as well as critical, hopeful as well as cognisant of multiple and continuing crises." - Environmental Politics

"Not only does Scerri offer a provocative reformulation of what sustainable citizenship might look like, he also provides an exceptionally thorough account of how Western conceptions of citizenship have evolved and what this evolution has meant for our relationship to the natural world." - New Political Science
