Communitarianism is, indeed, an emerging movement to go beyond the shackles of a sovereign nation-state. It is moving ahead into the realms of a global civil society tackling a number of its issues and problems on its own without always looking up to the State for all its solution.

On the pejorative side, racial communitarianism depicts and highlights racial exploitation, alienation and impropriety of balance between rights and duties of citizens.

Racial CommunitarianismPejorative and positive are both its connotations. Racial Communitarianism isalso an ages old phenomenon dating back to Plato’s and Aristotelian ideas whereeconomic well being, opportunities, political power and justice (or rights) flow fromvirtue and philosophy. Though their concept slightly differs from what we have especiallyafter the beginning of the disintegration of socialism in the last quarter of twentiethcentury.In the present-day context, questions of ethnicity, identity and an individual’srights vis-à-vis the institution of democratic State are the core issues of Communitarianism and Racial Communitarianism both.This is a post-post-modernist development in the sense that it engulfs not onlytraditions of libertarianism, modernity of civil society and peculiar amalgamation of boththese to bring forth something anew as good governance but also its quest for a balancedform of State and social ethos.Racial Communitarianism thus reflects a search and global movement for equalrespect and opportunities to people of all races in the pursuance of their duties as human beings and citizens of a global civil society. Rights will then be natural corollary of dutiesso performed professionally.On the pejorative side, racial communitarianism depicts and highlights racialexploitation, alienation and impropriety of balance between rights and duties of citizens.Communitarianism is also an attempt to work towards fighting various apparentlyfascist tendencies of libertarianism such as overarching power channels and structureslike the Security Council of the United Nations and the all powerful stature of thePresident of United States despite inherent checks and balances in the political system.Communitarianism is, indeed, an emerging movement to go beyond the shacklesof a sovereign nation-state. It is moving ahead into the realms of a global civil societytackling a number of its issues and problems on its own without always looking up to theState for all its solution.Standing on ones own feet, preserving ones self-respect, economic andmulticultural empowerment alongwith individual based and logically viable social andstrategic security network are major issues and challenges of communitarianism.Anurag Gangal, Communitarianism 1
 
There are also anti-communitarians. For them communitarian movement is for further curtailing individual’s rights vis-à-vis community rights. This is not the reality of communitarianism because the main issue of communitarianism is to secure a balancedapproach to rights, duties and justice (Raapana and Friedrich, 2008, see website).
Communitarians take issue with the idea that theindividual stands and should stand in direct unmediated relationship with the state and with society.
This is an idea thatflows through a great deal of contemporary legal and politicalthought in northern countries. Communitarians argue for thecontinuing significance of status and local networks, and the potential of other intermediate institutions (Frazer, 1999, 21-22).Communitarianism as such has several strands and directions. Only posterity willtell which way communitarianism goes!Anurag Gangal, Communitarianism 2
