GLOBAL SECURITY, DEMOCRACY AND
INTERVENTIONISM AFTER 9/11
The international politics is under evolution through the new emerging dimensions in international relations demonstrated after 9/11. This evolving system of international relations is associated with revitalization of 'values' like freedom and democracy in international politics, and untraditional objectives in the 'foreign policy'. This will eventually lead to an advanced and flexible norm of sovereignty.
The renascent Internationalism or 'Neo-Internationalism', as I would like to call, is an evolved state of international politics after 9/11 in direction of a new system of international relations, in which the 'internal affair' became an international concern due to the new state of 'international border' demonstrated by trans-border terror and dangers provoking trans-border democratization in a revived context of international concerted interventionism.
Hence, the opportunity is set for the international democratic interventionism to replace the chaotic aspect of post-Cold War international order towards global security, stability and prosperity through a new international order. Nevertheless, the arising indispensable question is, would the international order and organization aim democratization as a requirement for international peace and security?
However, there is still a significant indication of the changing reality came from the Lebanese Cedar Revolution by one of its leaders saying, “We are not alone.”
