Özet

Citizenship is about belonging to a group or community and about the rights and responsibilities associated with such membership (Meer & Sevei; 2004). The understanding of citizenship has changed over time. For a long time, the term citizenship has been seen as ideas of loyalty and patriotism to the nation state (Carr, 1991, p. 373). Recently the concept of citizenship has changed and got new meanings with the changing social, cultural, and political structure. Political scientists asserted different citizenship conceptions based on sociologic, national-global dimensions. Elitist versus activist citizenship model (Sears, 1996); disciplinary versus cultural citizenship model (Delanty, 2003); achievement versus citizenship as practice model (Lawy & Biesta, 2006) are among the citizenship models that have been recommended recently. In the modern day on the other hand the elements such as immigration, national belonging and loyalty, minorities and multi-culturalism (Maya, 2003) that were introduced by political, financial, and cultural factors have paved the way for the emergence of a new concept of citizenship that is referred as global citizenship. As it can be seen, the notion of citizenship has 2 dimensions; the first is status and role and the rights and responsibilities associated with them. The second dimension is about practicing those rights and responsibilities in society. The second dimension of citizenship requires that citizens in a democracy should participate actively in the economic, cultural, and political structures of decision making in society by using their equal rights and responsibilities.
