Summary/Abstract: Governments, in order to face new global actors, are not disposing of others instruments but only law and national legitimacy in order to insure that international law and ius cogens principles are respected and correctly applied on international stage, insuring in mean time, that international society, due to this “legal barrage”, will not fall into chaos or into the diktat of market regulations as in the radical globalist visions, but that will stay as society based on the force of law both on conventional relations between states, as well as on globalist relations, between states and global actors. Globalisation and its challenges are bringing in the international law the following dilemma: how can the state appropriately answer on inter- national legal fight? It is appropiate that the field of international legal protection of the state rights to be extended to the new global risks - if the new actors are representing a specific risk for the state? Or it is better to maintain the international law as a restrictive sphere with exclusively interstate in- terests, components and rights?
