This chapter seeks to challenge the concept of citizenship in the light of the main paradox of politics and democracy, consisting of the dialectic of inclusion and exclusion within a delimited territory. A reconstruction of the recent debate on social citizenship, multiculturalism, and cosmopolitanism – which refers to the transformation of the welfare state, the process of European unification, and the effects of globalisation – allows for the reconceptualising of the notions of marginalisation and social policy within a more complex international scenario. This factor should permit one to extend and, at the same time, to restrict the political/cultural boundaries of the nation/welfare state. Indeed, the main challenge consists of rethinking the normative basis and meaning of a ‘cross-borders’ democracy, social justice, and global governance, starting from local experiences.

Keywords:   citizenship, multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism, welfare state, marginalisation, social policy
