Problem

Indecisive multilateralism

Other Names:
Reduced government commitment to multilateralism
Ineffectual intergovernmental multilateral action
Nature:
Multilateralism stands for a long-held but rarely achieved ideal, namely the voluntary cooperation of nations for peace and development. Multilateral initiatives are undermined or diluted by ultranationalist, bilateral and regional initiatives. Multilateralism may be undercut by the uncoordinated decisions of those contributing to it.
