National State seems to be a key concept to understand modern political life and many scholars have been devoting their attention to it. On the one hand, they intend to demonstrate that we are witnessing a failure of National States to provide the needed answers to modern claims that nowadays can only be solved at international levels. On the other hand, National States seem to be the only type of social organization through which, especially in democratic regimes, people become effective in shaping the kind of world they aim to live in. Taking into due account this problematic view, our aim is to show that both approaches are real and need to be understood in their interconnected realms. As a classic formulation puts it, there has never been a more appropriate time to affirm that we are citizens of the world, but citizenship is, at its core and in its most significant meaning, a political and national status given by some form of organized political society. How can these different spheres of participation in political life be conciliated? How can these different claims, but with the same sources, be satisfied? How may we understand the national drives towards populism and authoritarianism in several National States with the appeal of a democracy policy with a suitable moral background that may provide a "good life"? Those are some questions we intend to address in this paper.
