Aspects of Sovereignty: Sino-Swedish Reflections

Hardback
The overall objective of this unique volume is to understand what effects globalisation has had on the traditional views of sovereignty, seen from a Chinese and European, primarily Swedish, perspective. Does the cultural-historical approach have any value in China today or is it only seen as political reminiscence with very little real effects in the wake of globalisation? What are the differences between different understandings of sovereignty in different parts of the world? How has the concept changed generally because of a different international structure, with for example regional integration gaining in importance not least in Europe? These are some of the underlying questions being addressed in this anthology. The authors are Chinese and Swedish scholars who offer reflections from the perspective of legal philosophy, public international law, international human rights law, economic law and international relations.
