The ability to govern its affairs, economy, legislature, and etc.- control over territory. Monopoly on the legitimate use of force. 3. Complete autonomy to run its internal affairs as it pleases. Each state is equal- none have the right to tell the other what to do. 4. Recognition from other states – mutual recognition US represents all the other states in the Global arena. Internal Sovereignty 1. Sovereignty is recognition by other states that a state may manage its internal affairs how it pleases. 2. States recognize each other in the international system. 3. By sovereignty, we mean that in principal all states are illegally equal (De Jure) 4. There is no sovereign over the sovereign (anarchy), If there are multiple sovereigns within a “State” it is civil war. Where did States Come from? 1. Primitive times- loyalty to family 2. Then village 3. Then tribe 4. Then City- State of kingdom by about 3000 BC to 1648 AD. In today’s world there are “City-States” such as Singapore and Monica.  International System was born in Europe with the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, after the Thirty Years War.  With the treaty State sovereignty was recognized for the first time Problems of Sovereignty:  Sovereignty is a legal definition and does not mean all states are equal in their power, influence, wealth etc.  Also, does not mean that states can prevent all crime, injustice, etc. Some states have higher capacity to regulate their own border and people than others. 2
