Political geographies at the beginning of the third millennium: Rokkan’s « fundamental model » revisited - The author assumes that the post-bipolar world is redesigning the geography of politics, multiplying the number of political groups that successfully claim the violent control of a particular territory, possibly at a sub-state level. These developments, which many have seen as a return to the original, anarchic conditions of outright war, or as a return to pre-modern models of feudal organisation are, nonetheless, a response to the new laws of privatisation imposed by the market and implemented by complicit governments. To better analyse this kind of evolution, the essay looks back at Stein Rokkan’s model of analysis on the formation of the modern state in Europe, reinterpreting and adapting it to the new context of reference.)" />
