Key points to remember:

  1. State Sovereignty – the right of the state to rule itself without outside interference
  2. Self-Determination – the right of the people to choose their own government
  3. Territorial Integrity – international boundaries should not be forcibly changed.
  4. Structure of the UN – (see slide on structure on blog)
