As a critic of the New International Order arisen in the aftermath of the end of bipolarism, Danilo Zolo rejects the progressive and optimistic image of contemporary international theory. First, he vehemently denounces the hierarchical nature of the Liberal Order, as well as the “global wars” which necessarily stems from it. Secondly, Zolo criticizes the political and legal cosmopolitanism which operates as a legitimating philosophy of the Global Order. Eventually, he puts forward a reversed image of the history of the last decades. For Zolo, globalization appears to be, not the era of a difficult but unrestrainable construction of a large web of (new) international institutions, but, rather, an era that sees the collapse of the classic institutions (beginning with war itself) that constituted the Westphalian system.

Abstract

As a critic of the New International Order arisen in the aftermath of the end of bipolarism, Danilo Zolo rejects the progressive and optimistic image of contemporary international theory. First, he vehemently denounces the hierarchical nature of the Liberal Order, as well as the “global wars” which necessarily stems from it. Secondly, Zolo criticizes the political and legal cosmopolitanism which operates as a legitimating philosophy of the Global Order. Eventually, he puts forward a reversed image of the history of the last decades. For Zolo, globalization appears to be, not the era of a difficult but unrestrainable construction of a large web of (new) international institutions, but, rather, an era that sees the collapse of the classic institutions (beginning with war itself) that constituted the Westphalian system.
