  2. Sovereignty, ecology, and regional imperatives: formulating normative foundations for regional ecological justice.Patrik Baard - forthcoming - Territory, Politics, Governance 1 (1).
    I will outline four justifications of regional ecological obligations calling for different political authorities to collaborate for ecological reasons: through voluntary agreement between political entities united by an ecological region; by a shared regional history or cultural relations to an ecological region; with reference to ‘place-based’ duties with an ecological basis; or by obligations to an extended set of individual right-holders. None are conclusive reasons but show that there are normative grounds for regional collaboration of separate political authorities. The article (...)

  4. Ambiguous Sovereignty: Political Judgment and the Limits of Law in Kant’s Doctrine of Right.Tom Bailey - forthcoming - Law and Philosophy:1-34.
    Kantian legalism is now the dominant scholarly interpretation of Kant and an important approach to legal and political philosophy in its own right. One notable feature is its construal of the relationship between law and politics decisively in law’s favour: Law subordinates politics. Political judgment is constrained by and only permissibly exercised through law. This paper opposes this subordination through a close analysis of an ambiguity in Kant’s conception of sovereignty. Understanding this ambiguity requires seeing that, for Kant, law cannot (...)

    Habermas’ theory of popular sovereignty has received comparatively little sustained critical attention in the Anglo-American literature since initial responses to Between Facts and Norms. In light of subsequent work on group agency, this paper argues that Habermas’ reconstruction of popular sovereignty—in its denial of the normative force of collective citizen action—is best understood as a renunciation of the doctrine. The paper is structured in three sections. Section 1 examines Habermas’ treatment of popular sovereignty prior to Between Facts and Norms as (...)

  14. After Sovereignty: From a Hegemonic to Agonistic Islamic Political Thought.Andrew F. March - forthcoming - Political Theory.
    The phenomenon of “Muslim Democracy” has been analyzed by scholars for a number of years, at least since the mid-1990s. The standard view about Muslim Democracy is that (perhaps like its European counterpart Christian Democracy) it represents a nonideological, or postideological, pragmatic approach to electoral politics. The purpose of this article is to advance two primary arguments. The first is that the turn to Muslim Democracy as an ideology and practice should first be understood as a way of thinking about (...)

  15. Algorithmic sovereignty: Machine learning, ground truth, and the state of exception.Matthew Martin - forthcoming - Philosophy and Social Criticism.
    This article examines the interplay between contemporary algorithmic security technology and the political theory of the state of exception. I argue that the exception, as both a political and a technological concept, provides a crucial way to understand the power operating through machine learning technologies used in the security apparatuses of the modern state. I highlight how algorithmic security technology, through its inherent technical properties, carries exceptions throughout its political and technological architecture. This leads me to engage with Theodor Adorno’s (...)

  16. Rights and the human condition of non-sovereignty: Rethinking Arendt’s critique of human rights with Rancière and Balibar.Omri Shlomov Milson - forthcoming - Philosophy and Social Criticism.
    If the instance of human rights cannot ensure the protection of the rightless, as Arendt famously claimed, how can the rightless struggle for freedom and equality? In this essay, I attempt to answer this question by reconsidering Arendt’s influential critique of human rights in light of the two polar responses it evoked from contemporary French philosophers Jacques Rancière and Étienne Balibar. Rancière, who objects to Arendt’s delimiting of the political, finds her argument excluding and dangerous. Balibar, on the other hand, (...)

  17. Sieyès’s idea of constituent power: a moderate and illiberal idea of sovereignty in the French revolution.Carlos Pérez-Crespo - forthcoming - History of European Ideas.
    Moderation and liberalism are different and in some cases antagonistic concepts. In recent years, the view that Sieyès’s idea of constituent power is a moderate and liberal rendering of sovereignty has gained acceptance in intellectual history and constitutional theory literature. This claim is based on the premise that radical and illiberal readers of Rousseau’s idea of sovereignty, such as Robespierre and the Jacobins, were opposed to representing the general will (volonté générale). Thus, constituent power as the exercise of power by (...)

The article outlines some of the theoretical debates between Black and Indigenous Studies that have calcified into impasses, focusing particularly on Afropessimist and Settler Colonial Studies’ framings of either slavery/anti-Blackness or settler colonialism as the foundational violence (...)

  22. The subject of sovereignty: relationality and the pivot past liberalism.Gregory Feldman - 2024 - New York: Berghahn Books.
    Seeking new forms of democracy, progressive politics raises a fundamental question: what is the alternative to the allegedly coherent, self-contained liberal subject that represents the project of modernity? Exploring the themes of nature, race, and the divine, this book identifies the more realistic alternative in the "relational subject": a subject that is inseparable from the global field of relations through which it emerges and yet distinct from that field because it lives a life that no one else ever has. Recognizing (...)

    This article holds that governmental investments in quantum technologies speak to the imaginable futures of digital sovereignty and digital infrastructures, two major areas of change driven by related technologies like AI and Big Data, among other things, in international law today. Under intense development today for future interpolation into digital systems that they may alter, quantum technologies occupy a sort of liminal position, rooted in existing assemblages of computational technologies while pointing to new horizons for them. The possibilities they raise (...)

    This paper focuses on Lefort’s and Rancière’s conceptions of democracy as a set of conflictual processes through which the composition of the public sphere is reassessed. Reading their works together and sometimes in opposition to each other, the paper extracts elements of a theory of inessential sovereignty that avoids the pitfalls of populist antagonism and of neoliberal diffuse domination. It analyses Lefort’s and Rancière’s understandings of democracy as rule of the people, which are based on ontological and aesthetical distinctions between (...)

    This research explores the potential theorization of the English School of International Relations (ES) in understanding the intersection between technology and International Relations. This research examines the case of the European Digital Sovereignty as a geopolitical vision by the European Union by instrumentalizing two important analytical frameworks introduced by ES theorists: International Society and Standard of Civilization. The analysis highlights how ES frameworks are helpful in capturing the constitutive nature and expansive character of the European Digital Sovereignty. Yet, this research (...)

This will happen not only as a direct consequence of climate change, but also because of policies for mitigating it—for example, through the installation of large wind and solar farms, the conservation of land in its role as carbon sink, and the extraction of materials needed for renewable energy technologies. In this article, we offer an overview of the justice-related issues that these impacts create. The literature on climate justice and territory (...)

    This chapter addresses the role played by competition law in defining the characteristics, as well as the limits, of digital sovereignty. Digital services and so-called online platforms (search engines, online marketplaces, social networks, etc.) have brought benefits to users and consumers, reshaping distribution systems and value chains, disrupting existing markets and creating new ones. The world economy increasingly relies on digital ecosystems and marketplaces and on the collection and processing of user data. However, the vertical integration and conglomerate growth of (...)

    The concept of food sovereignty is primarily taken as an alternative to the prevailing neoliberal food security model. However, the approach has hitherto not received adequate attention from policy makers. This could be because the discourse is marked by controversies and contradictions, particularly regarding its ability to address the challenges of feeding a rapidly growing global population. In response to these criticisms, this paper argues that the principles of food sovereignty, such as democratic and transparent food systems, agroecology, and local (...)

    This article discusses the evolution of sovereignty from the Anthropocene momentum. Most of the ecology-related literature finds the Sovereign State scale unfit to solve the environmental problems; however, States do persist, and it is quite impossible to ignore their central dimension both to international relations (IR) and internal politics. Their sovereignty is strongly limited by ecological dynamics, which paradoxically could need sovereign intervention to be mitigated. Political and social changes relating to the Anthropocene will have to deal with States, as (...)

    This chapter discusses the early, formative period of the Chinese approach to governing the internet from 1994 when China got connected to the global internet to the country’s participation in the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in 2005. It examines and compares the Chinese academic discourse on cyber/information sovereignty and official policies of this period. It shows that the academic discourse preceded the official discourse in theorising and explicitly articulating cyber/information sovereignty, and that while the academic discourse was (...)

    This edited book explores diverse contestations and transformations of sovereignty around the world. Sovereignty plays a central role in modern political thought and practice, but it also remains fundamentally contested. Depending on the context and perspective, it seems either omnipresent or elusive, liberating or oppressive, fading or resilient. Indeed, if in recent decades sovereignty has been expected to wane, today it is back on the agenda; not as the solid bedrock of modern - international - politics, which it never was, (...)

    This book is about virtue and statecraft in Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan. Its overarching argument is that the fundamental foundation of Hobbes's political philosophy in Leviathan is wise, generous, loving, sincere, just, and valiant-in sum, magnanimous-statecraft, whereby sovereigns aim to realize natural justice, manifest as eminent and other-regarding virtue. I propose that concerns over the virtues of the natural person bearing the office of the sovereign suffuse Hobbes's political philosophy, defining both his theory of new foundations and his critiques of law (...)

    Global human rights sanctions (also known as Magnitsky sanctions) regimes target individuals and entities involved in gross human rights abuses. The sanctions measures, including visa bans, transaction restrictions, and asset freezes, are implemented through executive decision-making processes. This article critically analyses the legality of Magnitsky sanctions in relation to the principle of state sovereignty, exploring whether these new transnational legal regimes disrupt the existing international legal order.

    China’s cybersecurity policies constitute an important component of global cybersecurity discussions in our current geopolitical environment. China’s rise against America’s relative decline has not only presented China and its Internet as an alternative to the U.S. model of economic and technological development, but has also fueled the great power rivalry between China and the U.S. especially in trade and technology. The US-China conflict is also taking place at a time when waves of populism are sweeping through the world prompting countries (...)

    Most people assume that the natural resources of a country belong to its people. Theorists of cosmopolitan resource justice have recently questioned this assumption, arguing that extensive rights of peoples over natural resources cannot be justified. In response, defences of peoples’ resource rights, grounded in the value of self-determination, have been tepid. This paper argues against both positions. It advances the distinct thesis that popular resource sovereignty is justified as the resource rights allocation that maximizes well-being. This consequentialist account provides (...)
