The world seems to be transitioning from a liberal world order to a new world order—one firmly based on nation-states and respect for their sovereignty. This article asserts that such a transition is not as unsettling as it may seem; many features of the liberal world order are, in fact, not as liberal as commonly depicted, and there is room for other liberal elements, such as the promotion of human rights and democracy, in the new world order. Although the world needs effective and legitimate supra-national global governance, it is not sociologically ready for such an achievement.
