ROJAS, Diana Marcela. State Failure And Globalization. anal.polit. [online]. 2007, vol.20, n.61, pp.73-85. ISSN 0121-4705.

State failure, more than a simple "anomaly" in the international system, reveals a deep transformation of statehood under the influence of globalization process. The so called "failed", "collapsed" or "unviable states" correspond only to the most extreme cases of a spectrum in which the limits of statehood "normality" turn out to be difficult to define and the modern concept of state-nation shows its inadequacy regarding the changes in the contemporary state. Therefore the need of a theory that comprises the model or models of statehood that would be in formation under this new global order.

Keywords : failed states; globalization; global safety; sovereignty; global policy.
