The Essay starts with the question whether the idea of a "sovereign state" should wither away in the face of new processes, namely globalization and human rights, processes which are sweeping the world. My conclusion is that the bureaucratic rationale of statehood allows citizens to improve their human rights through participation in a political process. If human rights are not respected, international law would support the national law system that is akin to statehood.
