Shared sovereignty : dealing with modern challenges to the sovereign state system
Arena, Marc David.
Thesis (M.A.L.S.)--Georgetown University, 2009.; Includes bibliographical references. The dissolution of colonialism in the wake of World War II caused a major shift in the balance of world relations. This thesis examines the two-part conundrum of globalization and ethnic nationalism as they converge upon some developing Nation-States. In part, my work uses my experience as a summer student at the Graduate Institute of International Affairs (HEI) in Geneva, Switzerland during the Globalization, Governance, and Technology program.; Viewed through an interdisciplinary lens, this study analyzes Westphalian sovereignty, the global economy, ethnonationalism, territorial identity, the state of nature, implications of weak and failed states, conflict management, and shared sovereignty in the negotiation process. This project reexamines sources of conflict and demonstrates the moral ramifications of shared sovereignty as a diplomatic alternative to violence.
