Summary/Abstract: Global movement of goods, services and capital, that causes the new forms of content and organization of production, that is increasingly growing into a new form of “global production for the global market”, is not able to fully define the essence of phenomenon of globalization itself. What makes the process of globalization is particularly rapid growth of communications, rapid growth of global participants and rapid growth of network system of global institutions. In the process of globalization, with a new form of communication between the growing number of participants in global relations, the structural changes taking place in which the state is losing its global position of the necessary factors of global production process. The growth of a large number of international governmental organizations (IGOs), international non-governmental organizations (INGOs), regional organizations (EU, Asia Pacific, NAFTA), the dramatic growth of MNCs, and the steady growth of mutual multidimensional and multiplication communication between these organizations, creates a process to a "reconfiguration of political power." Political power has been increasingly disseminated, on the one side, between national and sub-national level, while on the other hand, the diffusion of political power is evident among national government and supranational institutions and organizations. In this divergent process of "reconfiguration of political power", the transformation of state’s power has been turned up to a new complex forms of global governance in a complex political process in which the concept of national geo-political sovereignty has been increasingly mtransformed into the concept of "global-institutionalsovereignty."
