INR2001 Notes 2/1/16  Security: Small part of International Relations but is a big deal to states o In trying to be more secure, states have engineered the means for their own destruction.  State: Legal entity enforced by a government. A state is defined by its: 1. Government 2. People 3. Territory o #1 concern of the state is to protect sovereignty; guarantees freedom from others. o State system originates in Europe o Treaty of Westphalia: founded on principles of anarchy 1. States are states 2. States are sovereign (no one over the state) 3. Rule their own population 4. Own territory belongs to them  Nation: identity in which people connect by some means of ethnicity, culture, or language. o Not easy to mold a national identity o State must be compatible with national identity  Sovereignty: exercised through the government o Decisions are made by small group of people in all countries  Difference in Democracies is that we can regularly choose who makes these decisions and are held accountable. o States are equal under the law, but unequal in capabilities o External sovereignty: can’t tell a state what to do o Internal Sovereignty: can’t tell a state what to do on their own land o States have borers; sovereignty inside and outside the borders must be kept safe security  Security is a result of effort to preserve sovereignty o States have armies because they want them o States want armed forces because they want to survive o States go to war because they thought it was less costly to fight that not to fight (this is a rational decision made by a small group of people hopefully made in the best interests of the people). o Fighting is better than being obliterated, embarrassed, destroyed, etc. o Military is a strong part of the state that goes towards power and defense  Power matters (power isn’t simple)  Power o 5 permanent members of the Security Council all prominent powers but not super powers. o Small powers operate at the mercy of great powers o Monroe Doctrine: U.S. dominance in Western Hemisphere; some states hold resentment towards this declaration. o Serious relationship between influence and military strength o Economic power doesn’t hold the same dominance as military power o Differences between size and capacity  Ex. China has the largest army in numbers but can’t project its power because it doesn’t have the means to launch it (no military, air force, etc.) o U.S. spends almost as much as every other country combined on military (makes up 48% of the world’s expenditures)
