    • the "modern" world
      • continue to be effective and are protective of their own sovereignty
        • this world operates on the basis of the balance of power and the capability of a state is only limited by another
          • regional powers such as Brazil, China and India could ruin this balance of power
      • The United Nations upholds this world because it protects the sovereignty of these states and the EU is not a part
    • the "post modern" world
      • states have evolved past the westphilian state system
      • they have evolved past using war and use:
        • multilateral agreements
        • international law
        • global governance
