Abstract [en]

Democracy is always related to a place. This location is bordered by boundaries, such as the nation state. The boundaries of democratic citizenship are mostly based on the idea of universality. Modern democracies claim to extend the civic franchise and citizenship rights to all, or to all members of the community. However, this universality is always, historically and in the present, conditional. The notion of universal refers to some particular universe with its own rationale and discursive boundaries - both including and excluding individuals from citizenship. Individuals and groups marked by categorical markers such as women, Jews, blacks, gypsies, criminals, having a status with limited or no citizenship rights. In this paper I’m addressing age and the notion of adolescence in particular, as a categorical marker, and how this has an effect on young people’s democratic citizenship – in the present and in the future.
