Keywords: citizenship | nationalism | Spanish citizenship | nationhood

The theoretical literatures on nationalism and citizenship have often relied on the distinction between civic and ethnic models. The applicability of this distinction to ordinary citizens’ views has been taken for granted but remains largely untested. This paper uses Spanish data to contrast the civic/ethnic distinction with a Weberian one that contrasts bearers of restrictive and open conceptions of nationhood and citizenship. The statistical results suggest that this second distinction is a more valid construct than the traditional one.
