The way humanity governs itself is today changing very rapidly. Profound transformations in structures of political authority are underway in Europe, North America, and beyond. Nation-states remain central, but they cannot address the most pressing problems facing their own citizens without moving away from traditional understandings of sovereignty itself. Complex Sovereignty contends that just such a movement is underway.
Editors Edgar Grande and Louis W. Pauly and the contributors to this volume elucidate the meaning of ‘complex sovereignty’ through a set of conceptual and empirical studies including governance in the European Union and North America, the emergence of private-public partnerships, the adaptation of established international organizations, and the search for innovative mechanisms to manage risk. They reveal a fascinating and vitally important struggle to give coherence to a complicated governing system of multiple and overlapping hierarchies. This is an original, collaborative study crossing the disciplines of political science, international relations, sociology, and political economy.

'In this tightly edited volume, an array of internationally distinguished contributors provide illuminating insights into current transformations of political authority and timely evidence that the classical state form is losing the monopoly it once had and is no longer the sovereign entity it used to be. It also shows that the new evolving structures of formal and informal governance follow their own logic and cannot be captured by applying old concepts.Complex Sovereigntyis a must-read for anybody interested in learning more about these new forms of authority and decision-making.'-Ulf Hedetoft - Director of the Academy for Migration Studies in Denmark and Professor of International Studies, Aalborg University About the Author:
