The purpose of the study is to analyse the regulatory potential of international law taking into account its main focus for the regulation of new relations associated with digitalisation processes. The research methodology consisted of formal-legal, formal-logical, interpretation of law as well as general-scientific methods. The research resulted in the solution of problems involving the determination of the key areas of international cooperation in respect of those issues in which the need for international legal regulation has already most clearly manifested so far. The authors attributed to them the international cooperation under the auspices of international organisations, primarily the United Nations, monitoring compliance with international law and preventing its possible violations, solving global problems such as climate change, sustainable development, migration, terrorism and armed conflicts. The novelty of the research lies in the very formulation of the problem as well as the conclusion that international legal regulation in the field of digitalisation should be based on international consensus. At the same time, it is possible to reach such a consensus both within the framework of existing international organisations, which can be adapted to address new issues due to their universality, and through the development of new international agreements.
Key words: digitalization / international law / international cooperation / international organizations / sustainable development
