Keywords:Authoritarianism, World Order, Liberal Democracy, Fukuyama, Foreign Policy, Cold War
Globally authoritarianism is on the rise, while it seems growth of the liberal world order has halted and may be reversed. Some of the major countries like the United States, China, Russia and India show a rise in authoritarian practices in the form of assertive foreign policies, increasing nationalist trends interlinked with intolerance for immigrants and minorities, intolerance for freedom of speech and free press, and hostility towards liberal world order and international organizations. The contemporary rise in authoritarianism is influencing the world order, and it can have lasting impacts on the international political order; therefore, it is imperative that the major powers in the world take initiatives that can guarantee mutual coexistence. The norms governing the roles, and responsibilities of international organizations must be revised to play a role in ensuring justice at the international level and do not become mere tools in the hands of stronger states.
