ABSTRACT
The article starts with the distinction of central and peripheral modernity as a difference having negative effects on the functional differentiation of world society. Based on this starting point it faces the challenges of states in their respective contexts. From the perspective of Luhmann's systems theory, the author analyzes the characteristics and problems of the democratic constitutional state in central modernity. Next, the limits of state building and development are considered as well as the lack of autonomy or functional differentiation of law and politics in peripheral modernity. Last, the author discusses the trend towards a paradoxical »peripherization of the center« in the scope of the so called »globalization« and the limits of this trend in an asymmetrical world society.
