From the Paper:

"This discussion therefore centers on the theoretical frameworks and international bodies which have together helped to lay out a course by which individual states have been relegated to committee roles and multilateral agreements concerning such issues as commercial exchange, intellectual property rights and intervention with interstate, intrastate or ethnic violence. Today, more than anything, the individual state actor is part of a more interrelated global economy. The process of globalization, spurred by the inception of 'free trade' and a strategy of closer economic inter-dependency between nations, has produced a framework for global re-organization."
