Summary/Abstract: At the time of its resurgence during the last decades of the 20th century, the concept of governance, used by some as a feature of a political solution and by others as a criterion for analysis, was presented as something unchangeable and likely to serve as a lasting reference parameter. However, in particular due to different types of developments on the international stage, the normative dimension of governance most of all will be subject to re-assessment and to changes which even go so far as to question its legitimacy. This leads to us question ourselves regarding the impact of these changes on the normative capacity of governance. This article is based upon the hypothesis that that capacity has today reached the point of exhaustion, due in particular to governance being represented in multiple ways.
