213 6 The Future of ASEAN Sovereignty? The primary purpose of this book is to construct an explanation, rooted in a realist theoretical perspective, that more convincingly explains the dynamics of ASEAN state resistance to sovereignty violation.

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. Examining how the Association of Southeast Asian Nations’ (ASEAN) has responded to external threats over the past 50 years, this book provides a compelling account of regional state actions and foreign policy in the face of potential sovereignty violation. The author draws on a large amount of previously unanalysed material, including declassified government documents and WikiLeaks cables, to examine four key cases since 1975. Taking into account state interests and the role of external powers, the author develops the ‘vanguard state theory’ to explain ASEAN state responses to sovereignty violation, which, it is argued, has universal applicability and explanatory power.

role in shaping the governance of migration. Moreover, non-governmental actors, including businesses and activists, are also influential players in the migration governance space. The ways through which sovereignty is contested and governance is shaped by these various actors and stakeholders is a critical component of how global migration governance occurs. In this chapter, we examine these overlapping and contested spheres of governance with a view of labour migration within the India–United Arab Emirates (UAE) migration corridor – the largest Asian migration

Key messages Technological sovereignty has become a major political issue in the international arena. In line with this, the German government is developing a techno-industrial policy agenda. This creates tension since German economic policy has been shaped historically by ordoliberalism. Thus, the quest for sovereignty is constrained by a regulatory legacy that impedes strategic government interventions. Introduction Technological sovereignty has become a hot topic. From the Chinese government’s ‘Made in China 2025’ strategy to a whole

minority ethnic citizens more than others through their ancestry and/or ethnicity – so-called ‘heritage’ links. These dynamics push some members of society to the fringes of citizenship – they become ‘accidental citizens’ and a hierarchy or typology of constitutional claims becomes prevalent rather than equal justice for all. This chapter firstly establishes the links between cancellation powers and effects on minority ethnic citizens through the Begum case. It then examines parliamentary sovereignty and its interplay with issues of discretion and deference. It also
