Can the liberal international order survive? Nearly a quarter century ago, President George H. W. Bush proclaimed the dawn of a "new world order" in which the United States as the world's remaining superpower would lead the United Nations and other international institutions to promote democracy and free markets around the world. Today, we appear to face a new world disorder, as China challenges U.S. dominance in the Western Pacific, Russia seeks to undermine the post-Cold War settlement in Europe, and militant groups from Boko Haram to ISIS create havoc in important regions of the world. Can the U.S.-led liberal international order survive?
