New World Order


The term "new world order" refers to the cooperation between greater to great powers, strengthening of the United Nations and a more robust role of the international law. The term has been used to refer to any new period of history evidencing a dramatic change in world political thought and the balance of power. In present-day usage, the phrase is associated with President George Bush who popularized it in the aftermath of Iraq invasion of Kuwait. He was anxious that American reaction to this act should not be unilateral, but should be viewed in the context of a re-emergence of collective security in the post Cold War era

Political Perspective

In a speech on 11th September 1990 president Bush outlined five simple principles which should form the framework of an evolving international order. Out of these troubled times our fifth objective “a new world order” can emerge a new era, free from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice and more secure in the quest for peace ,an era in which the nations of the world East and West, North and South can prosper and live in harmony.
Many in the triumphalist West believe, that with positive US leadership a new, more stable and more international order could arise out of the straitjacket of Cold War rivalry and hostility. Although the term is associated in the popular mind with the Persian Gulf War, the idea it embodies are by no means new; calls for a new world order have regularly accompanied significant events usually the ending of general wars in international relations. Similar calls were made in 1815,1918 and 1945-46. In essence, these ideas are a re-embodiment of traditional idealist or Kantian liberal notions concerning inter-state cooperation, perpetual peace and harmony of interests
