Abstract: 

This paper works with the assumptions that the modern political theory is based on geometry: the political geometry of the inside and outside. It also considers that the fundamental concept of political philosophy is neither freedom nor political power but borders. In this framework, the paper aims to understand the locus and spaces that are problematic for nation-state sovereignty and it is concerned with the political status of groups of people that have challenged the juridical and political limits of nation-states. It calls these people "stateless" and "non-state" people. These groups are not the topic of this paper but they offer the possibility to understand the decline of nation-state sovereignty in the "post-Westphalian" order. The paper tries to trace the waning of sovereignty in this new global order and demonstrates that, as nation-state sovereignty wanes, states and sovereignty come apart from one another. And through this, we reach the concealed nomos of the political space within which we still live: "Boundary Walls". This paper shows that the nomos of the earth is defined by the Walls. It concludes that, the location of these vertical structures is an anomic space. Further, it will be explained that such a structure taken to mark and enforce an inside/outside distinction appears as a self-defeating paradox. Indeed, there is a struggle for anomic zone of suspension so that we can think of a kind of Politics of Resistance. The agenda of the paper is thus to restart from the structural facts, to measure the changes that have occurred and to ask once again what the role of politics can contribute in this context.
