This course explains post-Second War world in terms of division between parts of the world, without fully functioning states, sovereign states, concerned with territorial sovereignty and post-modern states, in which sovereignty is not based on absolute control over territory. The aim of this course is to provide students with a basic knowledge of the geographic criteria for statehood, functions of the state, the positive and negative sovereignty, international recognition and erosion of sovereignty.
