Abstract

Since its inception in 2001 and subsequent integration into the tri-national Great Limpopo Trans-frontier Park (GLTP), Mozambique’s Limpopo National Park (LNP) has been progressively trans-formed into a functioning wildlife park. Standing behind this transformation has been a profound expansion ofMozambican state power over and through the park. I address this tension by developing the concept of articulated sovereignty, which understands sovereignty as a heterogenous set of powers that are produced through often unequal interactions with other actors, including foreign or extra-territorial actors. I additionally draw on articulate sovereignty to show that the state and territory, like sovereignty, are built through various articulations with extraterritorial partners, thus drawing into question the sovereignty-state-territory triad. In short, articulated sovereignty sheds light on both the sovereignty complexities of transfrontier conservation projects like the LNP/GLTP and how sovereignty actually plays out in the world
