Abstract [en]

This article repositions sovereignty on the basis of a study of recent regulatoryapproaches to organized crime and money laundering. The spread of techniques acrossadministrative domains is traced through organizational documents and interviews withpractitioners, and related to an observed trend toward integration between policingresearch and regulation research. The same trend, however, assigns sovereignty tothe periphery. A richer notion of sovereignty is recovered through a reading of theclassical theorists, and used to tease out the articulation of sovereignty in current statestrategies. Theorizing ‘sovereignty at the center’ as opposed to ‘sovereignty at theperiphery’ challenges basic assumptions about the relationship between the state andeconomic activity, and in particular about the utility-oriented character of state violence.
