The author argues that fraternity is a pre-political moral obligation and the other two principles, however, are fully institutional political rights. In this article, it is argued that fraternity is a principle that works to deepen equality and freedom, and thus enables the idea of an insurgent citizenship that promotes institutional changes to universalize rights. Fraternity would be a permanently institutionalizable device, but never institutionalized once and for all; that is, a moral force leading to the emancipation of subaltern, excluded or discriminated groups.
