The aftermath of 11 September: increasing international insecurity
Connolly, Eileen; Doyle, John
Since the attacks of 11 September 2001 the US has chosen a strongly unilateral foreign policy underscored and effectively sustained by military power. In the immediate aftermath it was speculated that US desire to build an international coalition against terrorism and to take military action in sensitive areas would lead it to engage in dialogue with its potential allies in both the developed and developing worlds. This did not prove to be the case as the US has continued to act in opposition to the international community and to back up its foreign policy decisions with force if necessary. This article analyses the current international role of the US and the impact its actions have on the emerging system of international governance.
