The paper is trying to show on the existing potential of Articles 2nd and 3rd of Iranian Constitution as ones of basic principles for defining the issue of citizenship and in order to representing the capacity of above mentioned articles for forming construction of the system of citizenship rights – encompassing general guaranties of recognition, improvement, protection and ensuring the rights and freedoms for every citizen.
we examine if the theoretical model of citizenship cube and its doctrinal basis is applicable to explain and interpret the aforesaid articles and also, to comprehend some complex layers and dimensions thereof.
According to the citizenship-oriented theories, one side of the cube is consisted from five elements of citizenship, i.e. civil and legal, social, political, virtue-related and identity-related aspects. The other side of the cube is composed from functional networks or, in other words, the geographical levels of citizenship including local, provincial, statistical, regional and universal levels. And the last side is shaped from educating citizenship capacities covering levels of knowledge and skill.
It is to argue that some contents of the Articles can be creatively employed to propose citizenship cube and to provide the legal capacity for understanding the model within the Constitution.
