9780231106092: Losing Control?: Sovereignty in the Age of Globalization (Leonard Hastings Schoff Lectures)

What determines the flow of labor and capital in this new global information economy? Who has the capacity to coordinate this new system, to create some measure of order? What happens to territoriality and sovereignty, two fundamental principles of the modern state? And who gains rights and who loses rights?

Losing Control? examines the rise of private transnational legal codes and supranational institutions, such as the World Trade Organization and universal human rights covenants, and shows that though sovereignty remains an important feature of the international system, it is no longer confined to the nation-state. Other actors gain rights and a kind of sovereignty by setting some of the rules that used to be within the exclusive domain of states. Saskia Sassen tracks the emergence and the making of the transformations that mark our world today, among which is the partial denationalizing of national territory. Two arenas in particular stand out in the new spatial and economic order by their capacity to set their own rules: the global capital market and the series of codes and institutions that have mushroomed into an international human rights regime. As Sassen shows, these two quasi-legal realms now have the power and legitimacy to demand action and accountability from national governments, with the ironic twist that both depend upon the state to enforce their goals. From the economic policy shifts forced by the Mexico debt crisis to the recurring battles over immigration and refugees around the world, Losing Control? incisively analyzes the events that have radically altered the landscape of governance in an era of increasing globalization.

About the Author:

Saskia Sassen is the Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology and cochair of the Committee on Global Thought, Columbia University. Her most recent work is Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy. Her books have been translated into more than twenty languages, and in 2013 she was awarded the Principe de Asturias Prize for the Social Sciences.

Review:

Sassen is particularly concerned with the transformation wrought by globalization on the national state and its basic attributes: sovereignty, exclusive territoriality, and citizenship. She does a fine job of outlining the positive and negative aspects of this process. (World Affairs)

Sassen writes with a clarity that sacrifices none of the complexity of the issues she addresses. (Choice)
