Routledge Studies in Statehood

About the Series

This series provides a forum for critical, innovative, and interdisciplinary work that examines statehood in contemporary world politics. The series publishes titles which examine the ontological, political, legal, ethical, economic, practical, and everyday aspects of statehood, from state creation, sovereignty, diplomatic recognition, governance, territory, foreign policy and external relations to security, borders, identity, and citizenship. Titles in the series seek to problematise existing perspectives on statehood and offer new theoretical and policy alternatives to re-envisage statehood in the twenty-first century.
