This article analyses the main effects that globalisation produces in the institutional area. It focuses on two types of change: a) the change in the relationship between politics and economics, a crucial step in the road towards globalisation; b) changes in progress in the institutional scenario which, in turn, affect the government sphere and the legal system. Especially if we refer to the traditional characteristics of European states and the idea of law that went with them, we can see revolutionary changes taking place: law is served à la carte, while states are becoming increasingly "cold" and rational and speak the language of economics.
