Liberal Internationalism in the United States: Current Crises and Prospect Forecast

Lan Lang


Liberal internationalism is an international order that the United States has long advocated. The aims of liberal internationalism are expanding democratic practices and free trade, defending democracy from its rivals while protecting and promoting human rights. This essay will expound the definition and development history of liberal internationalism, analyze the current crisis it is facing, and point out it in combination with the current American foreign policy that although there are domestic and international challenges, the United States still has the strengths to promote liberal internationalism and maintain the existing liberal international order considering the historical background, comparison of national power, maturity of existing international order and the will of rising power. The Biden administration’s current foreign policy also shows that the United States is continuing to pursue liberal internationalism.
