Problem

Misuse of international forums


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Unbridled competition among social agencies
Rivalry between international groups
Divisive antagonism between international organizations
Nature:
International groups have tended increasingly to become forums for international conflict. Organizations from the United Nations to the Olympic Games are a crucial means of maintaining non-violent dialogue among nations and helping to promote peace. However, member delegations are increasingly using such organizations to publicize their own national, political, economic or cultural conflicts, valuing their unique "cause" above that of the global relations which such bodies exist to serve.
Broader Problems:
Unbridled competition
Problem Type:
F: Fuzzy exceptional problems
