Globalisierung und Nationalstaat
Imperialismus und Staat bei Nicos Poulantzas – 20 Jahre später
Poulantzas’s main contributions to the analysis of state and capitalist economy on a world scale are critically reviewed, distinguishing between his general theoretical approach and its particular application to Europe in a specific phase of imperialism. Furthermore an account of current changes in the national state is presented from a modified Poulantzasian stance. The paper concludes with some more general comments on the relevance of Poulantzas‘s work and some remarks to possible changes in the European Union considered in state-theoretical terms.
