Resilient Liberal International Practices

Resilient Liberal International Practices

(p.53) Chapter 2 Resilient Liberal International Practices
Liberal World Orders

Emanuel Adler

British Academy

This chapter focuses on the integrative force of resilient liberal practices. It acknowledges that liberal order is in crisis, but asserts that liberal internationalism's permanent crisis is a source of renewal and transformation in liberal order. A definition of liberal internationalism is put forward that carefully avoids constructing reified notions of liberal internationalism associated with American power. The chapter points to the need to focus on social practices to see the potential of liberal order's adaptation and renewal, and suggests that, although the decline of American power indeed may be seen from a narrow perspective to threaten liberal order, from a wider and deeper conceptual historical perspective, liberal practices may be why the order has not yet been replaced.

Keywords:   resilient practices, transformation, adaptation, European Union, integration, nuclear disarmament, liberal order's crisis
