Sample text

Is globalization by its very nature the negation of sovereignty, or can the two peacefully co-exist? As already noted, the two are normally depicted as locked in zero-sum battle. This, however, affords no more than a shallow interpretation. It fails to take account of both the theoretical and historical nuances in this relationship. Odd as it might initially seem, there is force to the suggestion that globalization requires sovereignty, not only as a real-life political infrastructure to sustain it, but also conceptually.

Evidently, there is also a 'positive-sum' aspect to the advance of sovereignty and globalization. A moment's reflection reminds us then how subtle and interactive is the dialogue between sovereignty and globalization. Nonetheless, whilst sovereignty has become more extensively entrenched as a result of globalization, elements of the former have also been called into question by the latter. The recurrent claim of the literature on globalization is that the forms of sovereignty are at the very least changing, and at worst are being wholly undermined, by its progressive spread.

Extraterritoriality was developed as a necessary part of a state system, and is fully compatible with sovereignty. It may simply be that the scope of this extraterritoriality has widened in recent years: a new system is emerging to meet the changing requirements of states in the performance of their various functions, and in response to the global networks and technologies which now surround them.
