2017. No. 1. P. 187–200 [issue contents]
The main emphasis of this article will be on the concept of state sovereignty in the conditions of globalizationprocesses and development of information and communication space. The paper presentsthe polarization of scientific approaches regarding the impact of globalization and informationprocesses on the concept of state sovereignty, questions about divisibility and restrictions of statesovereignty.The article criticized the postpositivist concept of sovereignty, which comes from the factthat the sovereignty ceases to be an essential feature of the nation-state in the context of globalizationand information processes, integration of states and their legal systems. The article also investigatesthe concept, justifying the need to review the concept of sovereignty and its limitationsin the modern world. The connectivity of states in political, economic, social and other areas havean impact not on the very sovereignty as a principle of international law but on the implementationof the sovereign rights of States. There is no practical and theoretical necessity to divide sovereigntyin different categories: economic, political, tax, network, digital, etc., taking into account theintegrity of the concept of state sovereignty. It should be added in this connection that there is no sense to categorize the sovereignty on many areas of its implementation as it is impossible to presenta full picture of all areas where the sovereignty may be realized. One more point to be made here isthe development of information and computer and telecommunications technologies, have an impacton the legal forms of realization of the state power. These factors have an impact on the realization ofthe sovereign rights of States which are implemented through a set of power — political power, jurisdiction.In this regard, the jurisdiction of the state and territory are challenges faced by States in order todetermine its jurisdiction with regard to network segments.
