Mondialisation et souveraineté: Une réévaluation de leur lien

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Asian States have generally taken a positive approach towards globalisation, in spite of the risk that it has always posed for their sovereignty. Globalisation has not only been used to increase the power and position of the States in the international system, as one might expect from conventional international relations, but also more fundamentally, to guarantee the security and legitimacy of their regimes. This latter dimension has always been decisive in the development of attitudes and responses towards globalisation. The risk of losing their sovereignty was ignored or even considered acceptable in a context where specific types of globalisation (e.g. transnational production) could be organised to coincide with the objectives of survival and legitimacy of authoritarian regimes. At the same time, the States have also sought to limit their exposure to and participation in the globalisation process (such as through the transmission of liberal values) when they conflicted with the regime's security. As a consequence, the attitude of the Asian States faced with globalisation remains cautious.
