Abstract:

Andean States have maintained a constant struggle against international threats yet without proper world community recognition. Counter narcotrafficking constitutes a high value Andean States policy neither to coincide with United States foreign policy nor to look for international economical assistance. However there are few regional efforts to fight against these international threats. Different perceptions and radical positions of national sovereignty and non-intervention in state foreign policies do not consider the increasing risk of a balloon effect that can affect each state in the Andean region. This paper will analyze the possibility of adapting sovereignty concepts to a higher level of nation-state in order to establish a regional state that will provide more capacities to achieve a future of security and development.
