In such an event a nations ethics are put in question. For instance, the international criminal court is always ethical, by avoiding arrest of criminals unless permitted by the government (Shapcott, C6)
Secondly, the element is the scale of adherence to international agreements made with other nations. Although limited by the available systems, a state is able to perform critical legal functions that ensure its survival as a legal entity in interstate relations and therefore acting contrary to the agreement and treaties by states. For instance, Iran was sanctioned for illicit nuclear activity by the U.S (Valls, C1).
Third, element is the grade and stage of decentralization of governance by a state. This is in respect to international states political and trade blocks. In ethical association among states parties, the respective foreign policies should be designed with enduring feature in the international decentralization system and stick to the central institutions of legislative standards while ensuring they are implemented (Amstutz, C2). China, for instance, has avoided interfering with local politics whenever they do a project in Kenya. This is thought to be ethical
