Shifting to a Cooperative International Order

Kevin Gustafson discusses the competitive and cooperative aspects of international relations and examines how both the League of Nations and the United Nations have failed in their main goal, international peace and security, because of a continuous reliance on competition and power.

“Just as the league did in 1919, the UN enshrines the continued unfair, unequal distribution of world power and gives the keys to the world to France, the United Kingdom, China, Russia, and the United States. These groups have authorized acts of war, like in Libya and Yugoslavia, and failed to prevent others, like in Yemen, Iraq, and Ukraine. This inability for the Security Council to do its job owes to the fact that the United Nations system assumes that, in order to ensure international peace and security, it must empower the great powers to do so, and in this sense it relies more on the competitive aspect of international relations than the cooperative.” – Kevin
