New world order is a phrase originally coined after the Great War (World War I) to describe Woodrow Wilson's strategy during the formation of the League of Nations. It was meant to imply that the international political climate that existed before the war had to be changed by adopting a compact of collective security and emphasizing the right to self-determination and democracy. However, when the United States rejected membership of the League, the term became discredited.

Since then the term has been applied (sometimes retroactively) to pivotal changes in international affairs, such as the end of World War II or the end of the Cold War.

More recently the term has taken on a much more sinister meaning as a catch-all term for various conspiracy theories.
