In the article the term globalisation is presented as the inevitable historical pattern stripped of any interpretation that would consign to it either positive or negative values. In the frame of that definition, the authors give their view of the purpose, original context and the perspective of the further development and eventual disparition of the European Union. The authors suggest that the EU was given birth in the historical moment when the scientific, technical and technological development of society reached a certain level which could maintain its functioning. EU is not, therefore, an entity essentially based on the political arrangement, but rather a historical pattern of society. Its idea had already been exposed before, but in those circumstances, the level of scientific, technical and technological development was not sufficient to uphold it. Again, thanks to the continued development of this material basis, the EU will in future become an obsolete category of itself, since its political structure and market will become inadequate to the new and wider range of social relations in this field. Eventually, the EU will probably submerge into even more universal organisations of kind, which would be able to follow this development more closely. EU Law, partially constitutionalised, remains a permanent particular regime of supranational law which leads to ever larger fragmentation of international law, which in turn, demands the need for the constitutionalisation of the universal international legal order as a whole.
