USA and EU are Destroying Their Own Order!

In this video titled "USA and EU Are DESTROYING Their Own Order!", Prof. Dr. Alfred De Zayas, a former UN official, discusses the erosion of international law and the decline of trust in the international order.

He criticizes the West, particularly the United States, for disregarding international law and the UN Charter, setting a dangerous precedent for new democracies and states. De Zayas also expresses concern over the politicization of international courts, such as the International Criminal Court (ICC), and the lack of representation for countries outside of the Western world in institutions like the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Dr. Zayas discusses the importance of public protest, clear language from international institutions, and the role of independent media in addressing human rights violations and holding governments accountable.

Additionally, he warns of the potential destruction of international norms and the dangers of nuclear weapons, emphasizing the importance of avoiding military conflicts and deescalating tensions between nuclear powers.

Dr. Alfred-Maurice de Zayas (1947) is a Cuban-born American lawyer and writer, active in the field of human rights and international law. From 2012 to 2018, he served as the first UN Independent Expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order, appointed by the United Nations Human Rights Council. He earned his juris doctor degree from Harvard Law School, then a doctorate of philosophy in modern history from the University of Göttingen (Germany).
