Abstract: The purpose of the article is to investigate the development of legislation on state immunity, in the presence of alternative dispute resolution options, and the essential need for quick regulation of existing procedural norms regarding state immunity. The article reviews the relevant literature on this topic through analysis and comparison. This paper covers the definition, role, and legal framework of state immunity in civil proceedings. Changes in the development of foreign economic relations have shaken the established theory of absolute immunity of states, and the international community, to establish fair economic relations, has gradually moved to the application of the theory of limited immunity in the form that is in effect today. State immunity still creates barriers in proceedings that not every plaintiff can overcome.

Keywords: legal basis; civil procedure; court; state; jurisdiction.
