Volltext/Document

Over the past year we have witnessed multilateralism lose ground in the Western political landscape, particularly in the United States. US President Donald J. Trump’s nationalistic rhetoric indicates a narrow understanding of US priorities at the expense of an international agenda. The announced budget cuts to US foreign policy more broadly, and intended drastic reductions to contributions to the United Nations (UN) more specifically, sent a clear message: the US intends to turn priorities away from the UN; managing global governance is no longer a political priority. On top of this, the UK’s decision to leave the European Union might soon limit Britain’s ability to pay.
