Securitising sovereignty? States, refugees, and the regionalisation of international law

Noll, Gregor LU (2003) In Refugees and forced displacement : international security, human vulnerability, and the state p.277-305
Abstract
At first sight, international law seems to uphold both state sovereignty and individual sovereignty. The existence and autonomy of a state are secured by the obligation on other states to respect its territorial integrity and the prohibition on intervening in other states’ domestic affairs. At the individual level, internationally guaranteed human rights serve comparable functions: they secure a minimum of autonomy and even preserve an ‘‘exit’’ option, because each individual retains a right to leave any country, including his or her own.
