The postcolonial states were created on the basis of the self-determination of “colonial peoples” as well as uti possidetis principle. The addressees of abovementioned principles were the inhabitants of colonial territories, regardless of their ethnic diversification. The decolonization was based on specific criteria of statehood. They were constituted because of the sudden swing from effectiveness to legality. The right to self-determination prevailed over the requirement of effective government. Such an approach caused the phenomenon of state failure in the nineties. This failure is connected with the evolution of legal notion of the state - the sovereignty is regarded as responsibility for protection of population. The postcolonial states are not able to fulfill this basic function. Nevertheless there exists a strong legal assumption of the continuity of state in spite of its ineffectiveness.
