The Globalization Impact On The US Foreign Policy

The phrase “globalization” refers to the strengthening of interconnections between an increasing amount of territories, both in terms of the density of those relations and the accelerated pace of engagement. This trend will certainly challenge US foreign policy, much like internationalization did before it. The ability of US to use its influence to alter international events is limited and altered by globalization. Basically, America cannot deal with the issues brought on by the globalization forces on its own. The aid of foreign nations is required in order to fight deadly epidemics, prevent the spread of Weapons systems, combat terrorists, ensure open access to markets, defend human rights, promote democratization, and preserve the environment.

Due to globalization, too many people support establishing new guidelines or entities for their own gain, while too few concentrate on ensuring that new rules are implemented and initiatives operate as envisioned. Due to this, US foreign policy lacks compliance to the already international agreements, nor does it empower agencies to better monitor and enforce compliance. The safety and financial well-being of Americans may be impacted by globalization’s effects on military involvement and alterations to the United States’ worldwide responsibilities areas of foreign policy.

Eventually we will inevitably be forced to confront the challenge of globalization. The world economy will likely be unsteady if foreign intervention or one-worldism is employed to manage it, and improvements in living standards both domestically and internationally would likely be slow. In order to address these challenges, specifically those emerging from the negative impacts of globalization, U.S. foreign policy must take the lead in establishing efficient international bodies and mechanisms.
