abstract

This article studies the interpretation and the practice of sovereignty in Central Asia. By relying on primary and secondary research material, the paper intends to achieve three main objectives: 1) to discuss the extent to which ‘sovereignty’ in Central Asia is interpreted and practiced along the lines of Western legal traditions, or rather presents indigenous traits; 2) to understand how authoritarianism impacts on the interpretation and the practice of sovereignty; 3) to assess the presence of a postcolonial narrative of sovereignty in the region, or the lack thereof. These objectives are meant to contribute to the regional agenda of the English School by exploring the polysemy of sovereignty, providing a better understanding of how authoritarianism intermingling with international society while interacting with postcolonial discourses in processes of regionalisation and interaction with global international society.
