Public Law is addressed traditionally to the State and especially refers to the relationship between the State and its citizens, between government agencies, between Member States and the European Union or between different States. But meanwhile the conventional boundaries and the images of the „State“ are dissipating. We have to deal with grey areas and interconnections between State and Civil Society as well as with a multi-level-system. Modern approaches – keywords are, for example, Governance, Constitutionalism, Legal Pluralism – require new observation and description patterns. They have yet to be elaborated upon and to be refined.
