241). Such ‘freelance hustlers’ find themselves incapable of disciplined self-government or full participation in civil society (Wood, 1990, p. 242). Their emptiness can never be balanced out by interdependence and universality. Hegel’s account of civil society is highly gendered, and this has particular implications for thinking about the good citizen and the migrant. 1 The model of citizenship on offer still echoes Rousseau’s dissected circle. Men’s lives were concerned with the state and with work in the external world, where they found the substance of their durable solidity, and fought their way to an integrated self.

129). Civil society thus involves an interdependence of each on all, with everyone involved in an ‘infinitely complex, crisscross, movements of reciprocal production and exchange’ (Hegel, 1967, p. 130). Their integration into this criss-crossed system of interdependencies meant that individuals are no longer empty; they are given content and solidity through this reciprocal process. Just membership of the state, in this account, is not only about belonging but also about the latent ideal of self-government and about being able to discipline the self through work.

Marshall’s classic account of Citizenship and Social Class remains helpful in this respect (Marshall, 1950). Marshall distinguished between three facets of citizenship: civil rights, political rights and social rights. He ascribed each facet to the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries, respectively. We can question aspects of Marshall’s chronology and we can take issue with his top-down, evolutionary model of how citizenship developed but, crucially, he draws our attention to the plastic and dynamic nature of the concept and practice of citizenship.
