This chapter attempts to theorise a model of critical citizenship that would bring co-nations closer towards moral recognition and/or ethical standing in divided societies. It investigates why liberals and communitarians are at loggerheads on moral values, and examines the way in which liberals and communitarians perceive the process of self-identification in terms of both personal identity and loyal membership to constitutive communities. The chapter explains how a model of critical citizenship based on the Kantian notion of critical practical reasoning can contribute to the resolution of the inert debate on the moral values of constitutive communities.

Keywords:   critical citizenship, co-nations, moral recognition, divided societies, liberals, communitarians, moral values, self-identification, personal identity, constitutive communities
