Promotionsvorhaben: The legal duties of citizens

Conceptions of citizenship within contemporary political theory are predominantly based on either rights, identity, civic virtue or participation. Contrary to this, in my PhD project I intend to advance a duty-based account of citizenship, which potentially holds a number of analytical and normative merits. This theory will be complemented and reinforced by a reconstruction of US-American and German constitutional theory and practice pertaining to legal citizen duties.
