La « révolution citoyenne » en Équateur est l'un des symboles des expériences post-néolibérales sud-américaines et le gouvernement de Rafael Correa est souvent évoqué comme une référence par de nombreuses gauches européennes. Les prochaines élections présidentielles auront lieu dans ce pays le 17 février 2013, dans une conjoncture politique où l'opposition conservatrice a été incapable de présenter une candidature unique et alors que le gouvernement conserve une très forte avance dans les enquêtes d'opinions, mais avec une baisse notable après 6 ans de pouvoir. Il y a deux ans, nous avions établit un premier bilan critique de l'expérience équatorienne (...)

Stripping the place of its importance means that no place can any longer consider its own plight and potency, fullness or void, dramas played in and spectators they attract, as its private mattes. Places may (and do) propose, but it is now the turn of the unknown/uncontrolled/intractable/unpredictable forces roaming in the “space of flows” to dispose. Initiatives are as before local, but their consequences are now global, staying stubbornly beyond the predicting/planning/steering powers of the initiative’s birthplace, or any other place for that matter. Once launched, they – just as the notorious “intelligent missiles” – are fully and truly on their own. They are also “hostages to fate” – though the fate to which they are nowadays hostages is composed and perpetually re-composed of the on-going rivalry between locally laid out and hastily paved landing strips for the ready-made copycat patterns… The extant map or extant rankings of the established airports are here of no importance. And similarly of no importance would be the extant composition of the global air-traffic authority, were such an institution in existence – which it is not – of which the pretenders to such a role learn currently the hard way.

"A Crisis Of The State? The End Of The Post-Westphalian Model" by Carlo Bordoni - Social Europe 2013-02-13 | offene Ablage: nothing to hide

"A Crisis Of The State? The End Of The Post-Westphalian Model" by Carlo Bordoni - Social Europe 2013-02-13 | offene Ablage: nothing to hide | oAnth-miscellaneous | Scoop.it

Based on the principle of limited sovereignty, the post-Westphalian model recognises in the modern state absolute and indivisible sovereignty over its territory and ownership in international relations, of which it is the sole subject.

If for a long time the state and nation have been able to live together, united on a historical and legal level by the insolubility of the fundamental principles that modernity assured, it was thanks to the agreements made in the Treaties of Westphalia, at the end of the long religious war, that had shattered Europe for thirty years. Since then, modern states, in the form that we have known for centuries, have standardised the so-called “post-Westphalian model”, which sets down the rules of universal stability and recognises the full sovereignty of a state within its own borders.

 

In the third millennium, it is the very post-Westphalian model that enters into crisis, dragging with it the crisis of the modern state, which is determined not only by the opening of borders, but by the inability demonstrated in maintaining its commitments to its citizens. In this phase, it is the “internal” boundaries that create problems. Security, defence of privilege, identity, recognition and cultural traditions, which once coincided with the boundaries of the post-Westphalian state, are now altered, uncertain, liquid. They are no longer reliable.
