  Sovereignty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sovereignty is absolute, thus indivisible, but not without any limits: it exercises itself only in the public sphere, not in the private sphere.
Sovereignty, or the general will, is inalienable, for the will cannot be transmitted; it is indivisible, since it is essentially general; it is infallible and always right, determined and limited in its power by the common interest; it acts through laws.
De jure sovereignty is the legal right to do so; de facto sovereignty is the ability in fact to do so (which becomes of special concern upon the failure of the usual expectation that de jure and de facto sovereignty exist at the place and time of concern, and rest in the same organization).

 Popular sovereignty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Popular sovereignty (also known as squatter sovereignty) is the doctrine that the state is created by and subject to the will of the people, who are the source of all political power.
Popular sovereignty is an idea that dates to the social contract school (mid-1600s to mid 1700s), represented by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), John Locke (1632-1704) and Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778).

 SOVEREIGNTY AND THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES
Internally within the United Kingdom, the notion of sovereignty is bound up with the doctrine of Parliamentary Sovereignty, which in turn is the outcome of the battle between Crown and Parliament as to which should wield supreme power in the land.
Even though the "loss of sovereignty" may be limited to fairly precise areas of Government and Parliamentary powers and be without significance for the lives of most of the country, still the phrase conjures up a spectre of major and uncontrollable change and of adjustments that will have to be made which are deeply disturbing.
Nevertheless the impact of entry upon sovereignty is closely related to the blurring of distinctions between domestic political and foreign affairs, to the relatively greater political responsibility of the bureaucracy of the Community and the lack of effective democratic control.

 Title of Work: Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission
Despite the fact that the Sovereignty Commission was soon to be identified as Mississippi’s “segregation watchdog agency,” neither the word “segregation” nor the word “integration” appeared in the carefully crafted bill creating the new state agency.
Meanwhile, the Sovereignty Commission deployed its paid and unpaid fl informants throughout the state to keep the NAACP and the Mississippi Progressive Voters’ League under surveillance.
But the 1956 act that had created the Sovereignty Commission remained on the state’s law books until 1977, when the state legislature voted to seal the official records of the agency for fifty years until 2027.

 SOVEREIGNTY - in the Context of U.S. "Indian law"
The result of colonial assertions of sovereignty was that indigenous nations were legally stripped of their independent status.
In the earliest treaties, statutes, and cases, indigenous nations were regarded as having a "subordinate" sovereignty related to their "right of occupancy." Denied full sovereignty as independent nations, they were nevertheless regarded as having authority over their own relations amongst themselves --an "internal" or "tribal" sovereignty.
It may also be true that the persistence of "tribal sovereignty" has kept alive the idea of local sovereignty, of "the people" as the ultimate source of legal authority.

 sovereignty. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The concept of sovereignty has had a long history of development, and it may be said that every political theorist since Plato has dealt with the notion in some manner, although not always explicitly.
Thomas Hobbes later furthered the concept of kingly sovereignty by stating that the king not only declares law but creates it; he thereby gave the sovereign both absolute moral and political power.
The concept of sovereignty was closely related to the growth of the modern nation-state, and today the term is used almost exclusively to describe the attributes of a state rather than a person.

Internally, a sovereign government is a fixed authority with a settled population that possesses a monopoly on the use of force.

 Leiter Reports: A Group Blog: Sovereignty
Third, I think the line between self-rule and dictatorial rule is less clear than it might at first seem, since dictators are generally open to some forms of informal influence from other power centers in the society, and the institutions of representative self-rule in a larger nation always disempower the population at least somewhat.
I mean all this to question the romance we attach to “democracy,” or procedural self-government, and to suggest, instead, that there is intrinsic value in an individual’s ability to identify with the ruler of the territory he calls home, even if it falls short of outright democratic self-government.
Second, it may be worth re-emphasizing that sovereignty so-conceived, as a "right" to a certain kind of rule based on identification, is not fact-dependent.

Creative Sovereignty God is the Lord of creation, the source of all things, who brought the world into being and who guides His creation toward a meaningful end.

 Bush's comment on tribal sovereignty creates a buzz
Sovereignty is "the nearest and dearest, No. 1 issue in Indian Country," said Jacqueline Johnson, executive director of the Washington, D.C.-based National Congress of American Indians.
To prospective Indian voters, sovereignty is an issue steeped in legal meaning that drives Native American stances on public policy, court cases and tribes' core "government-to-government" dealings with the United States.
He noted that, lost in all the fallout from Bush's statements on sovereignty, were statements he made later about his administration's substantial increase to Indian education funding.
