In a world with nationalism and far-right political parties on the rise, there is growing level of disenfranchisement and anger directed towards the globalization that occurred during the later half od the 20th century. These sentiments have the potential to undermine the current liberal world order and are a major cause for concern. It is crucial that global intuitions, trade deals, and strategic alliances continue to be strong an effective. At the SCUSA Conference we discussed many of these alliances and organizations that deal with a multitude of issues from economic power to martial strength and cultural influences. NATO is a prominent example of a current alliance that is under threat. The alliance which once helped end the Cold War is now a struggling contingent of disagreeing states. Russia's power is on the rise ad it is essential that the U.S. and its NATO allies work together to minimize Putin's influence and land holdings in Eastern Europe. While the conference addresses the benefits of having alliances and being part of multilateral organizations. These reasons are fairly straightforward and include economic benefits, military allies, and allows countries to stay relevant in a globalized world with only a few superpowers. However, we also discussed the surrounding being a member of either. Many organizations do not have equal representation, do not form plans with unanimous support, and at times suffer economically from certain trade deals. We need to ensure that all this reorganizations from the WTO to the UN are fair, impartial, and equitable to all the countries represented.
