NATIONALISM AND INTERNATIONALISM IN AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY
Keywords:Nationalism, Internationalism, American Foreign Policy
The American foreign policy is once again in the process of transformation from nationalism to liberal internationalism after the 2020 election. Unless we appreciate the value of liberal internationalism, it will be challenging to comprehend the American contributions to international relations and contemporary political life. Compared to the Trump administration, the Biden administration seeks to “build America back” again both domestically and internationally. However, American institutionalism comes in different forms and flavors. Nonetheless, internationalists of all stripes usually are quite comfortable engaging peacefully with allies, coalition partners, or other “friendly” parties in official state-to-state contacts or in international organizations as well as in the full range of private-sector commercial and other contacts that link non-state actors within and across societies. However, what concerns the Americans is how different internationalist policy elites prefer to deal with present or potential adversaries-a multiple choice of overlapping options that varies in application from country to country. However, while internationalists will stay as a cornerstone of the American foreign policy, the Trump nationalists within the Republican Party will remain as a factor in the coming years. As a result, liberal internationalism has its firm rooting as well as challenges with the Democratic and Republican parties.
