Abstract: This article analyses how changing notions of state sovereignty and the evolving role of individuals in society affect the way in which disputes can be effectively resolved. In a globalised society, nationality and all its inherent characteristics need to be balanced and viewed in light of the international nature of technology, investment, trade, and education. This paper argues that in an era of globalisation facilitated by an age of technology, parties to national and international disputes must transcend traditional notions of nationality and work from a consciousness of 'inter-nationality' in order to find balanced and effective diplomatic solutions to today's disputes.
Keywords: state sovereignty; nationality; inter-nationality; dispute resolution; legal consciousness; globalisation; technology; diplomacy; international disputes; national disputes.
