The unipolarity that came to develop in the post World War years started diluting towards the last two years of the 20th century. In fact, the world began witnessing the emergence of several centres of power: China, India, France, European Union etc. In 2001, China and Russia entered into a strategic relationship and one objective was to limit the role of the US dominated uni polarism.
India came to be viewed as a developing major centre of power in Asia. It began earning recognition as an IT super power, a steadily developing large economy, a strong contender for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council and an important actor with the potential to develop into a major global player.
September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the USA and December 13, 2001 terrorist attacks against Indian Parliament have been attacks against freedom, democracy and development. These have reflected the dangers in the civilised world as well as the inner unity and determination to end this menace through collective efforts.
However, the emerging international order is yet to acquire definite shape. It will not remain a unipolar system. It had nearly reached poly-centrism. New developments have been continuously coming. Scolors say the resultant will be an order with the USA, EU, China, Russia, India, France, Germany, Brazil and South Africa as centres of power.
One thing is certain, humankind is steadfastly committed to preserve, protect and defend international peace, to practice peaceful coesistence, to popularise the use of peaceful methods of conflict resolution and to secure and preserve poly centric character of world order. It is committed to eliminate terrorism and to protect the planet through sustainable development. The World Order is still an Emerging Order.
