This paper aims to explain how the theme of the Citizenship develops in Hegel's Philosophy of Right. Citizenship according to Hegel, consists not just in a legal arbitrariness, but in the free willing. Right as citizenship in turn is realised in the laws and spheres of ethical life. To carry out this purpose will traverse the path that leads from the family to the State, through Civil society. Expected to demonstrate as in Hegel there are important clues for understanding the difficulties that citizenship lies to be effective in real contexts.
