Sovereignty Revisited
Centre for Practical Normativity
Department of Philosophy / Kent Law School

Abstract: Sovereignty is one of the most contested concepts in political and legal philosophy, while at the same time a concept of tremendous importance in politics, finance and international law. It is particularly contested at the interface of national states and supranational organizations like the UN and the EU. Taking Dieter Grimm's seminal book "Sovereignty: The Origin and Future of a Political and Legal Concept" (2015) as the focus, four speakers will give short papers. This event is open to all students and academics. Electronic copies of the book are available.

Speakers:

  • Dr Eleanor Curran (Kent Law School), 'A Historical Perspective on Sovereignty'
  • Dr Edward Kanterian (Department of Philosophy, University of Kent), 'Sovereignty in the Constitutional State'
  • Professor Sorin Baiasu (Philosophy, Keele University), 'External Sovereignty'
  • Sebastian Payne (Kent Law School), 'Sovereignty Today'
