The Contributions of American Power to International Law
and Order in Today’s World
International law and order do not exist in a geopolitical vacuum, and they require a particular underlying balance of power to prosper. Although often criticized as disruptive and “imperialistic”, American power makes a vital contribution to international law and order in today’s world. It chief contribution is the maintenance of security alliances in Europe and the Indo-Pacific region within which regional communities of democratic states with high indices of human rights, rule of law, and social and economic development are able to flourish. At a global level, American military and economic power also helps to insure a global balance of power in which authoritarian and neo-totalitarian states such as Russia and China are unable to impose their authoritarian visions on the evolving norms and institutional contours of international law and order
