From the thesis abstract: "Does the continuing increase in globalization particularly in the areas of economic, technological, travel, immigration, and multiple citizenships decrease national sovereignty and
our ability to secure the homeland? This increase in globalization may cause unintended interdependencies. This thesis investigates the relationship between globalization, national sovereignty, and homeland security. If this increase continues without a balance will the government not be able to respond to an incident or will this impact the nation's willingness to unite to secure the homeland? Since the end of the Cold War (1991) the change of scale in international business exchange is unlike any other phase in history. Since the 1990s countries allowing or offering dual citizenship have also been increasing in number. This citizenship may cause confusion of allegiances to those that have more than one."
