At the same time, she is a sensitive, moral being who has an innate spirituality. These two aspects are expressed at three levels in the novel: Suitors - Tess's physical aspect attracts Alec; the spiritual aspect, Angel. The two men are often contrasted see Characterisation:
Violent ethnopolitical conflicts, separatist movements, rivalry for autonomy or political power, or territorial control, economic dislocation, among others, assail the integrity of the developing state, thereby impelling hegemonic actors major states, Intergovernmental Organizations IGOsand International Financial Institutions - IFIs to intervene in order to: The ever-increasing negative effects of transnational social forces tend to generate the pervasive force of a neo-liberal cosmopolitan moral view of international relations that increasingly sanctions both military and non-military interventions to maintain the existing structure of states and international society.
In other words, the disintegrative effects of globalization as well as the dislocative aspects of weak developing economies are increasingly undermining the twin pillars of non-intervention and state sovereignty.
Essentially, the objective of this article is to utilize arguments and perspectives from neo-Gramscian, neo-Marxist, and World Systems analyses to underscore the fact that the developing state's sovereignty is being assailed by various transnational globalization processes such as: The focus of the analysis is first, on peacekeeping as a hegemonic function, especially the substantive shift from traditional intervention to new variation in peacekeeping.
An example is the coercive consensual relationship or consensual domination of the developing state by Great Powers and International Financial Institutions IFIs in the area of economic policy. In post-Cold War international society in which military-strategic-defensive issues have rapidly given way to socio-economic globalization processes, non-military forms of intervention by Great Powers and IFIs on developing state sovereignty are increasingly becoming a moral problem as manifested in the reaction of large segments of developing state civil society to external economic impositions, such as International Monetary Fund IMF conditionalities.
First is the changed nature of conflict in the international system in the form of a rise in internal, intrastate violence as opposed to inter-state conflicts which undermine the sovereignty of the state and produce external peacekeeping interventions.
Second, is the economic dislocative effects of rapid globalization processes and deepening market forces that impel the intervention of IFIs in developing state economies, thereby destabilizing the "social contract" between state and citizens.
In other words, to what extent do violent conflicts within developing states and interventions by external actors undermine the national sovereignty of the state?
Transnational Forces and the State: An Overview There are three dimensions relevant to the analysis of socio political and economic developments at the global level that adversely affect the developing state's sovereignty.
The first is the practical-conjunctural level viewed in terms of intentional human agency Robinson, ; Wallerstein, At this level, it is important to draw the distinction between means which are policies and ends which are interestsand to recognize the tactical nature of many disputes related to policymaking between the developing state and external actors over the most effective means of achieving ends.
The second dimension is the underlying global structure in which states and groups engage with the broader world system. Analysis at this level is structural analysis. Structure shapes and conditions events and activities at the state level, often apart from intentionality.
The third dimension refers to processes in international society which straddle both the practical-conjunctural and the underlying global structure.
Through its interconnectedness with the two, it enables analysts to identify mechanisms that monitor functionalist teleology. Institutionalization is an integral aspect of the Gramscian notion of hegemony because institutions whether political-military, or socio-economic provide the systemic legitimacy for dealing with conflicts either coercively or through peaceful means Gramsci, The underlying structure of interstate relations intrinsically involves an enforcement potential under the control of the powerful nations.
The consequence is two distinct forms of Great Power-weak state relations: In the latter sense, it is the condition whereby strong states exercise leadership over weak states by gaining their perennial consent. To a large extent the use of force is obviated to the point that the developing state submits to the prevailing power relations.
Continuous submission is enhanced by the fact that the dominant states are willing to make concessions, implement policy adjustments, that from time to time help to alleviate the politico-economic burdens of the weak states.
Institutions provide the legitimacy of power relations, articulate the hegemonic mission of the powerful, and appeal for the cooperation of the weak. Thus hegemony which comprises of both coercive and consensual relations help to cement and legitimize, and internationalize the dominant moral and cultural values, and disseminate the worldview of the dominant states.
The hegemonic functions of the Great Powers, with the "consent" of the weak states create functional unity in a system of diversity. To a large extent, then, subordinate states either give "unwilling consent" or "voluntary consent" to the social logic imposed on specific issues by the strong states.
Accordingly, social forces that commence within the powerful states soon spillover into weak states, and the policy implications or adaptive mechanisms that accompany them imposed upon or integrated into the political economy of these weak states. For example, the transnational social forces unleashed by both the Cold War competition and post-Cold War era influence state structures in both the core and periphery.
In other words, changes in systemic polarity spawn forces that influence state structures, underscoring the fact that state structures are largely a reflection of a particular structure of world order and forces in existence. A world hegemony in this sense is thus the expansive effects of the individual and collective social forces of the dominant advanced industrial states.
The IFIs, the culture, the technology, and other entities associated with this collective hegemony constitute guidelines for development models in developing states.
The dominant effects of such a collective hegemonic system also becomes a demonstration effect which could have a profound effect on the lives of groups in poor countries. In his analysis of world hegemony, Robert Cox makes reference to the effect hegemony has on peripheral states as a passive revolution: A world hegemony is thus in its beginnings an outward expansion of the internal national hegemony established by a dominant social class.The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne is a story about human nature, and the conflicts that arise from it.
