Abstract: The state immunity represents a fundamental principle of Public International Law and its application created controversies regarding the relationship between it and the respect of fundamental human rights rules. The issue was raised before different courts: the European Court of Human Rights or domestic courts from Canada, Greece, United Kingdom,United States of America, Italy in complaints againts foreign states. The decisions rendered tend to consider the absolut concept of State Immunity except for the Italian Suprem Court which interpreted in a retrictive manner the concept. Even if the principle of immunity would be interpreted restrictively, a new controversy may appear: the dispute will be transfered from the concept of jurisdictional immunity to that of enforcement immunity.
