Since at least World War II and incorporated into the UN Charter, several liberal principles have characterized the international order, such as (collective) self-determination, basic human rights, an open international economic system, as well as rule-based and principled multilateralism. For the past ten years or so, this liberal international order (LIO) has become increasingly contested, both from within core Western powers (right-and left-wing populism) and external challengers (China, Russia, etc.). The roundtable will discuss these various contestations from global perspectives. Participants from around the globe will raise critical issues with regard to the LIO and its inclusionary as well as exclusionary features.
