Abstract: Nation states shape our experiences and very often, is a determinant for how our lives would come to be; the comfort, environment and opportunities we have. This paper aims to discuss the role and impact of nation states on the lives of people. I specifically discuss it in the context of international v. global justice where we consider who the relevant people are in relation to our state and our relation with people outside our borders. We will look at self-interest and, reasons for considering non-citizens and how we might have neglected them. There are three main arguments in this paper which will cover two forms of international justice namely, nationalistic discrimination of resources and distributive justice, and, an argument for global justice and the need to maintain an ethical interconnected relation with people across the world. I will be discussing how nation states affects one’s access to resources and primary goods, and how that would come to impact one’s lot in life. I will also be touching on ways of and considerations in making decisions — such as the influence of luck, what would be considered arbitrary discriminatory factors and entitlements.
