The paper aims to reconstruct the two levels, real and ideal, with which Kant investigates the issue of peace between peoples. Providing a political model of the international system that does not abolish the countries, but joins them according to the right of peoples and the values of republicanism, the Prussian philosopher sets the standards by which can be judged Hobbes’ theory on the State and Grotius’ theory on the laws of war and peace. The project envisaged by Kant to explain the historical development of human society towards universal peace and right, through hard times of conflict, may also provide criteria for assessing, in the contemporary world, the health of democratic systems and international relations. It allows understanding in depth the fast geopolitical changes taking place and providing the European Union lines of development and involvement in the system of States.
