Through an analysis of the ‘don’ system in Jamaica, Rivke Jaffe explores alternatives concepts of citizenships. She argues that new definitions of belonging to a political community, and the rights and responsibilities associated with these memberships, can take shape within a shifting spatial logic of government and ambiguous frames of legitimacy and morality. She calls for a deeper focus on the role of sovereigns that stand outside the state, yet may function as legitimate sources of citizenship rights, meanings and practices.
