“The Future of the liberal world order”
Internationalism After America
This article depicts a series of arguments
presented by G. John Ikenberry. As described the present framework is the
result of a transformative procedure starting from the west philia venture, in
which liberal esteems are multiplied by method for multilateral organizations
and arrangements. These arguments can be broadly classified as below, which revolve
around three important claims,

a move toward a multi polar world

American model of liberal free enterprise and raised new questions about the
capacity of the United States as worldwide pioneer. For a country to be
strongly efficient and have good political economy, wealth and power should Equify.

The Mythical Liberal Order
Naazneen Barma, Ely Ratner and Steven Weber
In the article “The Mythical Liberal Order”,
the author raises a very pivotal question of where is the liberal world order
that so many western observers talk about? In 2012, when UN Security council
convened international pressures on the president of Syria Bashar al-Assad, not
even 9 months later China and Russia vetoed any moves towards multilateral
interventions. In the world where we have countries following rules and
regulations to contribute to the progress and collective security, shared
economic gains and individual human rights. It is important for countries to
take initiatives rather constrain the same. This article revolves back to the
history and formation of NATO, NAFTA, GATT, WTO, IME etc., with some of past
occurrences. “International cooperation on security matters has been relegated
to things like second-tier peace keeping operations and efforts to ward off
pirates equipped with machine guns and speedboats”.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (tpp) trade
agreement is a reasonable example of what bargaining toward liberalism looks
like in practice. The pact, albeit a work in progress, has brought together
nearly a dozen countries to devise a “gold standard” trade agreement for the
twenty-first century. It is open to all who are willing to commit to a series
of liberal economic and trade principles, and it holds the best promise for
advancing a liberal trade agenda.
The story comes to life in a sort of attractive
radicalism, where nations and remote arrangement choices are pulled in to the
liberal world requests. With couple of special cases, U.S. outside arrangement during
the most recent two decades has been predicated on the presumption that the
attractive field is solid and getting more grounded. It’s ought not be mistaken
for reality. Practically speaking, the attractive field is prominent chiefly
for its shortcoming. It is basically not the case today that countries feel
similarly a piece of, responsible to or compelled by a liberal request. we
believe, is the most effective way to advance liberal objectives and values at
present. Can it work with America’s domestic politics? We think so, because an
ad hoc, problem-solving approach to global governance does not have to be post ideological.
Instead, it aims to deliver upon the goals that liberalism seeks to realize and
to meet its aspirations through the pursuit of tangible results, not the
pursuit of institutions or world-order solutions. In this alternative
framework, getting to a solution drives the form of collaboration rather than
the other way around. We are advocating the pursuit of a multigenerational
liberal project that can and should be advanced without the anxiety of trying
to lock in interim gains through global institutions. Let’s focus instead on
laying the material foundations for a future liberal order—let the ideology
follow, and the institutions after that.
The authors argue that international
organizations and governments had not provided coherent responses to perceived
security threats in areas such as North Korea, Iran, and the South China Sea.
The authors also discuss the global response to the Arab Spring movements in
the Middle East.
After careful review of both the articles, I
strongly agree the articles depict the past and future of liberal world order.
One represents the future of liberal world order and the other mythical aspects
pertaining to the past. It is very important to consider the past mythical
liberal orders, to better plan the future liberal orders. As this will help
countries to tackle the global issues, security concerns, terrorism, natural
disasters etc., together and facilitate global peace and stability.
