Liberalism in International Politics:

An Essay and Lesson

Written by JazzMan (Work in progress)

This essay is a defence of the international politics definition of liberal, and how it applies to the United Nations. Ideally I can use this essay to petition the definition's inclusion into the article on liberalism, but I won't hold my breath. The definition upon which this essay is predicated is as follows:

In international politics, liberal is a term which describes an actor whose foreign policy methods are focused on institutions and international laws instead of political power. They believe that there is a complex interdependence between states, and that there is no hierarchy of importance among international issues. The United Nations is an example of a liberal political organization.
The opposite of a liberal is a realist.
