Abstract: "Human beings become citizens, strangers or indigenous peoples by cognitive and normative constructions. In all societies human beings and collectivities are typified and endowed with a special status to which is attached a wide array of rights, obligations, and ranges of normatively acknowledged autonomy and self-determination. Such typifications may be used as important constituent elements of all-encompassing normative systems. They are also regularly made up ad hoc in routinized life situations and in problematic situations, at interpretations of existing general types or as innovative constructions."
