Abstract: Since the mid-1940s, the countries of the world have acted and interacted in an amorphous body called the international community. On the one hand, the international community seeks the common good, while on the other hand, the individual nation states within the international community often prioritize their own national interests over global initiatives. In this presentation, we consider the extent to which the countries within the international community can be expected to find common ground, while still maintaining their unique integrity.
