This chapter considers the fact that the claims that were made in Alsacia and Cerro Teta were both about land or resources and the modern state or governance. These were claims towards a complete citizenship gained through participation and territory and were valid subjects of the state that come with the right to an opinion in state actions, policies, and practices. This chapter also looks at the dynamics of these two claims and the modern forms of governing. It asks the ways how self-governance and autonomy that were acquired through claims to ethnic territories have come to be viewed as a means to get a complete citizenship.

Keywords:   claims, modern state, complete citizenship, participation, territory, forms of governing, ethnic territories
