 Contributions of International Liberal Arts Colleges
Many of the basic needs for international understanding are integral to a liberal arts education: the undermining of parochialism, openness to change, the acquisition of effective communications skills and the ability to see ideas in their full complexity.
In their special educational tradition, the international liberal arts colleges emphasize the development of an openness to new ideas and experiences, a sense of personal and societal responsibility and a capacity for self education - attributes that are eminently deployable in a changing and challenging world.
At an international liberal arts college, with a high proportion of students and faculty who have international interests and experience abroad, a global perspective is more likely to permeate the institution and its curriculum, leading to still more interest in acquiring an international perspective.

 Democratic Enlargement versus Liberal Order | TPMCafe
The current liberal order, in their view, acts as a constraint on the use of U.S. power which is needed to facilitate the democratic enlargement.
To address the original topic; for liberal internationalism to survive in the next century, it has to be reframed in a context that acknowledges the size and dominance of the United States in respect to other liberal countries.
The way to meet this aim, if existing international agreements and protocols are not sufficient, is for all countries to sacrifice a measure of their autonomy in exchange for a new measure of integration directed to mitigate the threat.

 _Making Democracy Safe for the International Liberal Economy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Embedded liberalism was not forcefully imposed upon the debilitated entrepreneur by the collectivist alliance of big labor and big government to pave the “road to serfdom.” It was essentially a defensive measure taken by moderate (conservative or liberal) political elites in consultation with leading factions of the business community.
In a sense, when social purpose of reconciling domestic stability with international liberalization prevails among policymakers and cardinal social groups the role of democratic institutions in safeguarding the losers’ interests tends to be less salient.
Embedded liberalism of the 1950s could function with efficacy in part because it was lucky enough to have such contextual variables as the Cold War that had the effect of simplifying the terms of international policy coordination.

 Liberal Confusion : Friedrich Naumann Foundation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
In other languages and cultural settings, though, the term “liberal” has a completely different connotation: I remember conducting seminars on liberalism with students from Latin America, some of whom were almost embarrassed when asked for their definition of liberalism, as in their part of the world the term is associated with sexual aberration, even abnormality.
While we in Europe associate liberalism primarily as a set of political programs that curb the intrusion of the state in our personal lives (and consequently also in the economy), in the US liberalism has become a synonym for exactly the opposite - advocacy for government sponsored spending.
The variety of concepts and policies, which is typical to most international debates, is a reflection of the fundamental political, social and also cultural differences in different parts of the world.

 SSRN-Liberal International Law Theory and the United Nations Mission in Kosovo: Ideas and Practice (draft paper) by ...
Determining which ideas dominated international discourse on an important but theoretically complex topic and how they impacted policy-making can be a virtually impossible task.
When the international community is forced by events to make collective decisions, the results can be analyzed to see what ideas were most influential and the role they played in the actual decision-making of people in positions of power.
In particular, the claim that non-liberal states could be transformed into liberal ones through links between sub-state institutions, like regulatory agencies and courts, served as the crucial intellectual bridge for the theory to be used as the model for UNMIK.

 My journey into international Liberal Education - Featured Topic Liberal Education - Find Articles   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Although this worldwide growth of liberal education may be stimulated in part by American energies and models, it rides as much on rich currents that are not native to us.
But just as often, and sometimes more often, in order to prepare their students, in their lands, these programs focus on their own regional histories, their own native arts and literatures, philosophies and religions, as well as on the recorded and historical accounts of neighboring states and peoples.
But, though our goals may be shared, I quickly realized a major difference: Our Central Asian colleagues more explicitly and viscerally comprehend the vital importance of the liberal arts to establishing and maintaining their new nations as strong and healthy democracies.
