    international relations that state sovereignty is being undermined by globalisation. Scholars argue new global powers are bringing about the end of state sovereignty as states are losing the ability to effectively govern their own societies and economies. (Ohmae 1995, Scholte 2000 in McGrew 2014: 16) This essay however will attempt to reaffirm the importance of the sovereign state despite globalisation, initially through examining some arguments for the proposed idea, and secondly through adopting a realist perspective on the issue. Sovereignty is defined by Heywood (2014: 4) as the “supreme and unquestioned authority” and, he says, what gives a state sovereignty, is its ability to govern itself and make its own laws.…

    In order to be a Sovereign State, in my opinion, there must be some sort of government. You must be able to have absolute control over all aspects of your country, and you must also provide adequate welfare for your citizens. If the welfare of your citizens becomes unsuitable, and you are no longer able to take care of them; or choose not to, then you are no longer a sovereign state.

    government that is created by people coming together and deciding that it is in the interest to create a government. The idea is impractical as in most cases; it is the sovereign that decides to create a strong state. The people in most cases are never consulted and their views rarely considered. Therefore, creating a strong government that serves the interest of the people impossible and constituted by individuals impossible. Analyzing the Leviathan, there are some rights that the ruler should…

Most of he interviewees (5/7) evoked possible diversions of resources for non humanitarian purposes: for the government the resources needed for its population may be allocated elsewhere, and for separatists groups diversion of aid may be employed to…

    tension between state sovereignty and international intervention in pursuit of human rights protection has been contested. Over three centuries later, and the United Nations Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine has codified human rights protection in a global political commitment of the highest order.

Historically, China has gone through multiple transitions — through hierarchal feudal state, communist municipal and disciplinary regime. There is one notable unchanging, and static fact— that throughout these platforms, China was never ruled collectively (even…

    failed state, undeniably it could be argued that it is the classic case as Liberia, Sierra Leone and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). As Messner (2013) argues, “it is also indubitable that the plan to build and sustain a modern state, with internal and external sovereignty as its defining characteristics has failed in Somalia.” However, Robert W. Cox (2209) adds, “many works in political science dealing with Somalia are written from a ‘problem-solving perspective’ rather than analytical…
