The Moral Neoliberal

Ethical citizenship, which represents, to borrow Émile Durkheim's phrase, a species of solidarity quite different from its twentieth-century (welfarist) forebear, is a fundamentally novel way of conceptualizing collective existence, how it ought to be reproduced and shaped. Scholars of welfare have come to think about citizenship as a set of rights that got rearticulated over time through a series of “citizenship projects.” Social citizenship hinged on an awareness of the generalization of interdependence that linked “all members within a national collectivity, coupled with a sense of responsibility which does not impel to personal action” but which instead required the poor to be cared for by the state and out of public tax funds.
