Abstract: After the fall of the Soviet Union, the world moved from two poles (USA and USSR) – holders of the basic ideologies by which countries and peoples of the planet could be inspired  – to the loneliness of the US expressing the single praxis of market and privatization. But this is not perceived as legitimate. New legitimacy and new functions are then assigned to international organizations, entrusted with the tasks of resolving the crisis and of managing the transition, of intervening anywhere in the world where there is a crisis, but for a limited time span.
The consequences are discussed here, both in what refers to the intervention areas of these international organizations and for the consequences that this has on national sovereignty. The argument is developed in the light of a new ideology, the one of “international solidarity”, and of its new relationship with national sovereignty.
The problem and the consequences of these changes are analyzed in the facts of Kosovo, for which the short- and medium-term projects for a solution are also discussed.
Many scholars, politicians, diplomats, Italian and foreign, help to develop this reading of “international solidarity” and “national sovereignty”, with reference to the Kosovo events.
The last part of the issue contains the documents that mark the functional changes and the new interventionism of international organizations.
