By the treaty. it was in this region. All states are exclusively believed to have authority.that in 1648 the Peace of Westphalia was signed. formally ending the religious feuds that had led to the 30 –year and 80-year wars. each capable of defining its own goals and cultural mission.the cities of Münster and Osnabrück. the universal ideas giving cohesion to the medieval world-a cohesion no less important because it contradicted great diversity-gave way to separate states and nations.

The loyalty on God & Church as a universal politico-military entity has ended up. It continuously posits state as the most important actor in International Relations. All also believed as a rational actor pursuing power within anarchical world structure. and eventually replaced by the loyalty towards specific territory and nationality. and provided the ideological justification for ultimate control within a specific territory at the same time that it provided a basis for (co)recognition from other states (principle of reciprocity) . These theoretical postulates and its consequence on how state behave one into another in “the real world”. has deep long roots in The Westphalian Treaty which had occurred in almost half millennia ago. control. though not immediately." developed stronger controls over their own borders.

Multinational Corporations have evolved to become “a new giant creature of economic” that has a fluid mobility of capital and a structural ability to operate not only their distribution but also their production across border. particularly on how state cope with several contemporary global problems. events. and “deepening” (a significant blurring of the local-global or domestic-foreign divide). .
