    Abstract: In the modern era of governance, state is experiencing diverse transformation technologically, economically, politically, socially, culturally, demographically and so on. The paper classifies these transformative reforms into political, sociocultural, and technological changes and therefore redefining state in accordance with these change trends. The concern raised in this paper is: how did these transformations effect the role and the functions of the state? The desktop study utilises the use of literature and documents, hence follows a qualitative and analytical approach to answer this concern, that is a subject matter of this introductory paper.
