More about moral realism and counter-globalization:  

International relation theory of moral realism attributes international changes at system level to leadership of major powers. International leadership plays more significant role in shaping global order than political institutions. The current transition from globalization to counter-globalization is resulted from the decline of liberal leadership. At present, populist leadership is prevailing among major powers, thus, there is little chance for the world to witness the emergence of a global leadership, no matter based on a single power or a collective body, for re-globalization in the coming decade. To deepen our understanding about international relations, international relation students need to do more research on leadership in the aspects of both its influence and formation.
