One proposed distinction is when recognition serves the interests of states in a facilitative or instrumental manner,9 depending on the level of importance attached to the act of recognition and the actors involved in the process. A facilitative role for recognition indicates a desire or choice of a state regarding its attitude towards another entity with little legal fallout. An instrumental role by contrast leans towards the normative aspects of recognition as it implies the adoption of a legal stance for both domestic and international institutions regarding the status of an entity.
The perspective of the state as a central actor in this process is imperative, such that examining the role of recognition and its form of application can highlight important substantive differences on the manner by which the international system is to react. Note however that the act of recognition is linked to a host of evaluations and considerations in both the facilitative and instrumental context. Although the facilitative/instrumental categorisation assists in making a distinction at least as a means of showing how to understand the role of recognition, further questions arise.
Foucault understood power and its application as being subject to constant change and alteration. The contention is that the legally derived power of the ruling authority or of the sovereign entity as the case may be, is rather fragile. There exist a host of influences that derive from a diverse array of actors external to the state that might be using their notion of power for their benefit. In the recognition context for example, the variety of influences and considerations that go into the recognition decision reflect the broad array of factors.
