Globalization and Changes to State Sovereignty 0 unread of 0 messages

View Full Description and Attachment(s)

As we see in the readings this week, international relations scholars and analysts debate the impact that globalization forces have on state sovereignty. Using the readings, compose a post in which you analyze the following questions:

To what extent, and in which areas, has national autonomy declined? To what extent, and in which areas, has national autonomy expanded?

Are the analysts that Stephen Krasner discusses correct in claiming that “the sovereign state is just about dead?”

Your post should evaluate key arguments and examples from the readings primarily, and outside sources (if you feel they would be useful) secondarily.

Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 350 words.
