The "state" is out of date: the need for a new definition of the state

русская версия

Опубликовано на портале: 11-08-2015
The issue of non-functional definition of the state, solely based on the comparative advantage in violence, extending over a geographic area is addressed in the paper. Traditional definition does not exclude from the analysis all the organizations, which cannot be concidered as a State, but have advantage in the use of violence over specific territory. This situation creates difficulties in analizing The State, as far as it blurs the subject of study. The author proposes to develop the definition of the State by adding new marks: legitimacy and sovereignty. New functional definition helps to exclude those organizations that are not states from the analysis.
