Summary/Abstract: A study on the Empire’s condition, with a close look over the differences between old and new models. Nowadays empires are no more features of a state-centered world, but organizations, as UN, OTAN, Council of Europe. They are postmodern empires, specialized in protecting, affirming, and promoting democracy. They still use military power, but their functions and objectives are changed. UE is an empire of this sort, a historical expression of a (post)modern empire.
