Citizenship and identity as ethos and habitus - Discussing the concept of citizenship and identity is never neutral as the political implications cross the boundaries of our stand and position on the world. Showing citizenship as the result of an institutional rite we define the behavior and rules of conduct within society, otherwise called the ethos. We may also demonstrate identity as the expression and argument of our internal placing during the process of socialisation, named habitus. Finally, by showing the overlapping of these two concepts within each individual group, and in order for them to recognise themselves as such, open their mind to their social behavior to keep intact their inner self. This article helps us understand that the durability of a symbolic and physical territory, where citizenship and identity are built, depends on the social capacity to include others and their interests. It is by this social practice that society has so far managed to survive and it is inevitably through this that they will continue to do so.
Keywords: Citizenship; ethos; habitus; identity; migration; territory.
