Abstract

Sovereignty is often invoked by Brexiters - yet it is an increasingly slippery concept in a globalised world, where the demands of trade and diplomacy force states to compromise their independence. Philip Allott (University of Cambridge) discusses why the EU's lack of a common identity has enabled sovereignty to be deployed as a patriotic concept.
