For much of the history of the modern state system, the presence of a military force in a given territory was tightly linked with authority over that territory. That is, the territory on which a state’s military was stationed was either an integral part of that state or a subjugated territory. In contemporary politics, however, this linkage has become contingent, as is apparent in the advent of the long-term, peacetime stationing of military forces abroad either in the form of a foreign military base or the presence of internationally-mandated peacekeeping forces.
