With the treaty State sovereignty was recognized for the first time Problems of Sovereignty: Sovereignty is a legal definition and does not mean all states are equal in their power, influence, wealth etc. Also, does not mean that states can prevent all crime, injustice, etc. Some states have higher capacity to regulate their own border and people than others. 2
