In this paper we make an effort to establish connection between Max Weber’s models of bureaucracy and to apply the same in the context of the globalization. The theoretical bases of modern rational model of bureaucracy can be seen as one of the characteristics of global societies. Furthermore we analyze the function of international organizations as UN, World Bank, IMF etc. The example of European Union and its administrative capacities and structure are showing practical utilization of the model. This is very important in sense of generating model of bureaucratic settings which are connected with the bases produced by the theory of Max Weber. We assume that there is slide shift of the basic models toward new approach and perceptions. The discursive understanding of bureaucratic society offers alternative perspectives which include sociological, political and legal aspects integrated in synthetic approach. The future social developments and institutional bases of nation state are shaped intensively by globalization. In this sense state service is internationalized and boundaries reshaped.
Keywords: Max Weber, bureaucracy, globalization, discourse, nation-state
