Practicality of traditional international institutions in New World Order


(MENAFN) In the contemporary global landscape, the end of Western hegemony poses one of the most significant challenges to the international community. This transition brings with it the potential collapse of the established framework of international cooperation, both in practical terms and in its foundational principles. Yet, this shift could also open doors for other nations, including Russia, to devise new institutions and frameworks in the coming decades. These new structures may significantly diverge from those currently in place. This evolution is likely necessary, as the existing system of institutions, norms, and values has been predominantly shaped by the dominance of a select group of states and is fundamentally designed to serve their interests. Consequently, it would be impractical to replicate the existing practices exactly.

However, new practices might not achieve the same level of success due to the fundamental principles embedded in them from the outset. Practically, this means that countries outside the "collective West" cannot simply adopt the practices established for coordinating the efforts of the United States and Europe in their efforts to dominate global affairs. Notably, organizations such as the G7, NATO, and the European Union have been among the most successful international entities in modern times. However, these organizations are highly specific in their objectives and internal structures, primarily aiming to safeguard the special rights of their member countries in their relations with other nations.

As the global order evolves, the viability of traditional international institutions is in question. The current system, having been constructed around Western dominance, may not be replicable or effective in a new world order where power is more evenly distributed. This necessitates a reconsideration of how international cooperation is structured and a potential shift towards more inclusive and representative global governance models.
