  1. How sovereignty is exercised and on what is it based?
  2. Can we say that this analysis of sovereignty is still valid nowadays?
  3. What can we conclude from the application of this theory to the postcolonial states?

This document is based on Thomas Blom Hansen and Finn Stepputat's article: Sovereign Bodies. Sovereignty is often described as the link between a state and its territory. If we refer to the definition of philosophy given by the Stanford Encyclopedia, we will discover that sovereignty is a "supreme authority within a territory?. However, according to the article written by Thomas Blom Hansen and Finn Stepputat we see that even if the link between state sovereignty and territory remain one of the pillars of the modern states, this link can be challenged. What was interesting in this article was the attempt to give a modern and dynamic definition of sovereignty, and of what is implied by the definition of a State as a sovereign entity. I will try to underline how the process of sovereignty is also an involvement of the society on which the sovereignty is exercised and not only from the recognition given by other sovereign states.
