VIDAL-MOLINA, Paula  and  VARGAS-MUNOZ, Roberto. Citizenship in Times of Capital. A Critique from the Marxian Tradition. Convergencia [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.80, 07. ISSN 2448-5799.

This article offers an analysis of the notion of liberal-Marshallian citizenship in the light of the impact that neoliberalization processes have. We describe an approach to the hypothesis that neoliberalism does not allow the realization of the notion of Liberal-Marshallian citizenship due to the dispossession of social rights, indebtedness and growing precariousness of work, and wealth concentration. For that, it addresses two levels of analysis: a conceptual one, about the notion of citizenship, focused on the liberal idea; and, a second, which identifies the determinations of contemporary dependent capitalism and the limits of the kind of citizenship that can be built within those parameters in a neoliberal context. Methodologically, the article tries to develop a heuristic interpretation of the work of several authors, as primary and secondary sources.

Keywords : citizenship; liberalism; capitalism; neoliberalism; Marx.
