Jurisdiction, Territorial; State, The--Philosophy
David Lefkowitz, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Richmond, explores the modern states' right to territorial jurisdiction. He investigates a certain approach to justifying the territorial dimension of a state’s political authority – its right to enact, apply, and enforce the law over all those present in the territory it claims a right to rule – while leaving open the justifiability of any other territorial rights claimed by (or on behalf of) states.
