Le transnational : du symptôme à la crise de l’État régalien

Abstract : International law is based on the notion of sovereignty. In this context, sovereignty is necessarily exercised by the State. However, State sovereignty has been limited - by States themselves - in the name of fundamental rights and rights of foreign investors. As a result, transnational law and the effective possibility of practising forum shopping and law shopping was made possible by States. The definition of sovereignty has evolved. With the development of transnational law, the notion of sovereignty becomes a technical notion and a tool for economic influence. The notion of sovereignty of the State no longer refers to the supreme power of the State, but is a technical notion used to protect some of the strategic interests of the State.
