ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the continued relevance of sovereignty in a globalising world. In the case of Russia and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, federal entities which consisted of core national groups seceded from these two super-states to form a number of smaller, independent states. For Yugoslavia, the process was tragic with hundreds of thousands of deaths which are attributed to the succession of wars accompanying the disintegration of the state. The concept of the state is still relevant, and that stateless national and ethnic groups make the dream of state-making and state-building a priority, whether or not the price is high.
