Marten Boekelo examines what it means to be a citizen in Lebanon today. He does this via the lens of sectarianism, which can be characterised as a political philosophy that divides the world into a state, religious communities and subjects. He asks what symbolic resources people have at their disposal to take a critical stance outside the language of political sectarianism.
