Power is 'the ability of a person or group of persons so to affect outcomes that their preferences take precedence over the preferences of others' (Strange 1996, p.17). Significant to discussions of nation-states is the dimension of authority (to enforce compliance), fundamental to legitimate and well-functioning states (Lentner 2004). Power structures condition resource choices, and so power and agency are crucial in understanding globalisation as a process. Yet popular conceptions of globalisation avoid the reality of a world composed of states as collections of power with individual centres of decision-making (Lentner 2004).
