Saving the Liberal Order from Itself Politique étrangère, Vol. 82, No. 4, Winter 2017-2018

The election of Donald Trump is a symptom of a general crisis in international liberal order.

Its costs have been seriously underestimated: relocations breaking the social contract, migratory flows poorly assimilated by societies, divisions between the elites and the masses (the so-called “losers” of globalization), electoral and political crises. Societies should adapt the liberal order to their deep-rooted characteristics, and not accept it as a global and obligatory reality.
