Today's international system is influenced by a dynamic transformation period full of questions, to which there is no simple and definite answer. The complex interplay of many factors, makes it extraordinarily difficult to foresee a new, relatively stable, world order, even with the presence of what is perceived today as the sole super or hyper power, which might even be described as an empire. Simultaneously, we are witnessing the emergence of the "super empowered individual", for whom the world is reduced to a global village . This fact means that uncontrolled violence may strike at any time and place. Both extremes of power operate on the basis of entirely different interests, thus tending to produce a permanent state of structural instability. The international community is therefore facing a long term challenge to identify the conditions for a new equilibrium of legitimate stability.
