Resume:

Today, at a time of globalization, there is an urgent need to conceptualize the contradictions caused by the emerging of new social forms and by mixing the previous ones. It is increasingly obvious that the processes of bringing them together and mixing would go further, whether we like it or not. The author thinks that these processes are absolutely natural and call for the balanced and accurate legal regulation and legal analysis. Due to the legal convergence, national legal systems become more similar and can be treated as a whole. The author examines the category «convergence» from the perspective of international law and underscores that the convergence of national legal systems is primarily related to the functioning of special international legal mechanisms. Actually, the convergence has a long thousand-year history that can be traced back to the assimilation of various national legal systems that was based on Roman law and customary law. By taking into account different scientific interpretations of the concept «convergence» the author formulates his own definition: this is a process of bringing together different national legal systems, which is related to the activities of international law-making actors; occurs at universal and regional, multilateral and unilateral levels by using specific legal unifying methods and taking different forms; aims at achieving unity and uniformity of legal regulation.

Key words: 
convergence, reception, unification, international law, globalization
