Abstract:

In recent years, the collection of rules, norms, and institutions that collectively came to be understood as the liberal order after World War II has come under increasing strain. Both geopolitical and ideological pressures are calling into question the sustainability of this postwar order as currently conceived. Yet little systematic analysis has been conducted of what alternatives existwhat form of international order could succeed the postwar liberal form as we have known it.This report offers such an analysis, defining and evaluating four alternative international orders that could respond to changes in international politics and the role that the United States could play in each.
