Distance affects state power in two distinct ways: First, the state experiences difficulties to reach communities in remote localities—a problem of infrastructural power. Second, it is difficult to insulate state agents from undue influences from their surroundings—a problem of state autonomy (Koss & Sato, 2016: 396).
