Equal Citizens

Equal Citizens

(p.195) Seven Equal Citizens
Turf Wars
Stanford University Press

This chapter is concerned with the process of claiming various territories in Buenos Aires. It is argued that this claiming process also sets into motion the cementing of political decentralization and giving the locals a better understanding of their rights. It shows how the process of claiming helped create fresh ways of thinking about politics and the municipality and led to a new imagining of the state. Next, it explains how this process establishes new institutions at the national, community, and local government levels and how claims to citizenship can be maintained. The politics of equal citizens is discussed in the latter part of the chapter.

Keywords:   process of claiming, collective territories, political decentralization, municipality, imagining of the state, citizenship, equal citizens
