5 March 2021

Summary

The task ahead for those of us “present at the re-creation” is to trans- late the enduring principles on which the postwar order was constructed into a significantly redesigned system capable of meeting the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century.4 First, the United States and its democratic allies must act to revitalize support for the principles of a rules-based system. [...] The system also includes treaties and agreements designed to stop terror- ism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the centerpiece of which is the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). [...] The splitting of the atom could have resulted in widespread nuclear-weapons proliferation and nuclear use had it not been for the NPT and extended US nuclear deterrence in Europe and Asia.18 The most important technological advances for globalization, including the Internet, occurred and flourished in the free world, defended by the United States and its democratic allies and partners.19 Finally,. [...] The United States and like-minded states must be prepared to renovate the system to confront the challenges and seize the opportunities of the twenty-first century. [...] Rally the support and active participation of the leading democracies The success of the order rests on the proactive support of leading democratic allies to deepen strategic cooperation to advance a rules-based system.
