Global Powers and the Rule of Law

Global Powers and the Rule of Law

(p.427) 20 Global Powers and the Rule of Law*

Hans Köchler

Oxford University Press

This chapter first considers the internal contradiction in the system of international law which is exemplified in the politics of global powers. It then focuses on global powers—their politics, sense of exceptionalism, and their belief in the supremacy of national sovereignty. It also analyzes some of the policies of the present era's major global power, the United States, insofar as they are related to issues or events that had far-reaching implications for world order.

Keywords:   power politics, global powers, international law, exceptionalism, national sovereignty, United States, world order
