Over the last four centuries The British Empire played a key role in the geopolitics. The Empire's past as a naval superpower and ruler of half of the world, raises a number of important questions regarding the imperial conception itself. It is closely linked to a specific system of dependencies for the management of subordinate territories on a global scale. For its part, the above mentioned system is also based on a particular structure within the British colonial administration. It is not a passive structure itself, but it has a clearly distinct evolution according to the specific imperial needs. The development of this flexible system goes through several clearly distinctive stages, namely colonies, protectorates and other territorial statutes in the face of the later dominions. Subsequently, the policy of giving or recognizing different levels of self-government in dependent territories, which benefits from the expansive nature of the empire, led to the emergence of the British Commonwealth at the end of the twentieth century. This community is made up of self-governing territories that recognize British sovereignty more and more symbolically. Today, the countries of the Community include former elements of the British Empire in a free association of sovereign countries. The potential exit of Britain from the EU gives additional relevance to the topic, namely the possible restart of the "British Commonwealth" project as a response to the difficulties ahead in the implementation of " Brexit".
