Globalization and the growing interconnectedness of states, economies and communities has not resulted in the demise of the sovereign state. On the contrary, the peculiarity of the international order remains in how the existence of the unique goals of each nation motivates the manner with which states engages and drives the global agenda. Nor has globalization led humanity toward a more fair and equitable distribution of wealth, a resolution to poverty or to a universal civil society. In fact, for many of the challenges facing humanity we seem to be moving further from resolve. Nowhere has this had greater impact than on the sphere of migration and peace-building.
