I would argue that it was the preface of U. Non- alignment developed a weakness. The third was the re-emergence of Europe as a massive, integrated economic power.
The Three Pillars of the International System In this new era, Europe is reeling economically and is divided politically. From a small world of nearly 60 states in s, it has become a big world of more than states. What were the changes in America after World War 1?
As such, the current objective is to secure sustainable development, real and enduring development, which in no way limits the ability of the future generation to develop. Fourth, China is becoming self-absorbed in trying to manage its new economic realities.
What changed after the cold war? None of the other four permanent members Veto powers were prepared to displease the surviving superpower.
In the contemporary era of international relations, all the members of the international community, both the nation-states as well as the non-state regional and global actors, have accepted securing of sustainable development, protection and promotion of environmental health and protection of all human rights of all the people of the world as the three cardinal objectives to be secured in the days to come.
The emergence of some new centers of power, the European Community, Japan, Germany, China, India and NAM, initiated the process of transformation of the bipolarity towards multi-polarity or polycentrism.
The differences between Roosevelt and Churchill led to several separate deals with the Soviets. Now, we are at a point where the post-Cold War model no longer explains the behavior of the world. They have the power, rather the overkill capacity, yet they cannot use it for securing their desired objectives.

The initial phase of the post-Cold War world was built on two assumptions. The first assumption was that the United States was the dominant political and military power but that such power was less significant than before, since economics was the new focus.
The end of the Cold War -- and US Cold War administrations -- has created a unique opportunity to make profound changes in the international humanitarian system.
At the same time, there will be new challenges, many resulting from the collapse of the Soviet Union and a re-ordering of the international power structure. After the cold war it is safe to say America has taken on a new international role as a world peace keeper, or world police sort of, although are actions are only executed when the benefits out weigh the risks, like in the case of Iraq for forgien oil.
During the Cold War, the United States and its allies competed with the Soviet Union and its allies militarily, economically, and ideologically. Both sides created massive military forces and huge stockpiles of nuclear weapons. During the post-World War II era, American foreign policy prominently featured direct U.S.
