In the past two decades, many have posited a correlation between the spread of globalization and the decline of the nation-state. They have maintained that the increasing interdependence between countries means that nations are no longer the sole providers of their territorial security. This text investigates.



Regional security arrangements like the EU and ASEAN have not achieved much, and weak states - the ones most impacted by the turmoil generated by globalization - are far more traditional in their approaches to national security, preferring to rely on their own resources rather than those of regional and transnational institutions. This is a bold argument, and Paul and Ripsman amass a considerable amount of evidence for their claims. It cuts against a major movement in international relations scholarship, and is sure to generate controversy.
