DVPW Congress 2021: DiD03 | Challenges to the Liberal International Order
The Liberal International Order (LIO) is increasingly under stress: Among the transatlantic core, the Biden Administration will not resume U.S. leadership in world affairs, let alone hegemony. (Right-wing) populist challenges are unlikely to recede on either side of the Atlantic. China is increasingly assertive, particularly with regard to core liberal values such as international human rights and the rule of law. Many states in the global South contest the LIO as both exclusionary and partial to the wealthy in the global North. Last not least, exogenous challenges such as Covid-19 and climate change further challenge the LIO’s resilience. The roundtable with leading experts from around the world will discuss these and other contestations of the global liberal order including possible remedies.
