Abstract

By focusing on how states have to share their sovereignty with other agents in asylum issues, this paper aims to show the relevance of the state–foreign individual relations for sovereignty. After a brief theortetical discussion, the paper maps out the different forms of sovereignty-sharing in asylum issues in Europe. The results of this analysis strengthen the hypothesis that individual asylum seeking has led the states to accept sovereignty-sharing with both domestic and foreign actors to an extent which we do not observe with regard to other global issues. The resultant sovereignty-sharing forms pertain specifically to decision-making on asylum cases, which should also have consequences for our understanding of sovereignty.
