    but when the weknesses exposed in conventions cannot be remedied because of what might replace it, it shows that the progress is not so great.

    Look at Chapter VII of the UN Charter, sorely in need of repair with so many internal conflicts going on.  That is but one example.

    Some say that the Westphalian system of great powers will re-emerge if progress is not made, to ensure stability.  The great powers, even under the present system, wield power, but often they are hamstrung by the wrangling between states.
