  • Earlier versions of this article were presented to the SIAS Workshop on Citizenship and Migration, June 2007, and to the “Language and Politics: Normative Reflections” Workshop at Nuffield College, Oxford, March 2009. I am indebted to the participants at both of these events, and also to Robert Amdur, Eamonn Callan, Helder de Schutter, Bryan Garsten, David Johnston, Will Kymlicka, Karuna Mantena, José Marti, David Miller, Alan Patten, Melissa Schwartzberg, Lea Ypi, and the Editors of Philosophy & Public Affairs for their very helpful comments.
