... and why
Today, the struggle concerning climate change and pandemics as part of a global agenda might ease tensions from time to time. International and non-international relations are nevertheless likely to become more confrontational in the years to come. Multilateralism and parts of international law under pressure, confrontations may well be characterized by less restraint. After all, militarization is also a global trend, supported by arms exports not least by Western countries.
