  • SC Okeke


The emergence of state system in the history of mankind brought alongside issues that border on the modalities for its existence. There has actually not been any known rigid formula for its emergence. This has been eliciting excitement and, on many occasions, conflicts among proponents and opponents of rigid state system devoid of birth of new ones as the case may be. The onus of this paper is to ascertain that states are formed from time to time by way of disintegration or merger. In doing this, historical, legal and political factors are taken into consideration.
