Both political philosophical and sociological accounts of citizenship stress equal rights and obligations. However, citizenship can be viewed as a vehicle by means of which the state structures social inequality in both state socialist and capitalist societies. This occurs in three ways: by offering formal equality to those who are materially disprivileged; by the establishment of differential citizenship statuses; and by the manipulation of political support. The consequent patterns of "unequal citizenship" are a contradiction and there is a continuous expansion and modification of citizenship practices as the contradiction is manifested. Historically there are three forms of citizenship which emerge in response to this contradiction: individualistic citizenship, uninational citizenship and binational citizenship.
