Uncertainty is the notion that can be a one-word description of the state of global affairs. Tensions in the world order architecture are symptoms of its ongoing transformation. The purpose of the article is to explore the reasons, manifestations and direction of this change. The prime assumption of the analysis is the regress of the West. NATO as a strategic bridge between two centers of the West – Europe and the United States – is subjected to scientific investigation to examine its possible role in reestablishment of the relative power of the West and regaining its defining capabilities in the world order in statu nascendi. The analysis is supplemented by two scenarios of possible trajectories of world order transformation.

REGRES ZACHODU I WYŁANIAJĄCY SIĘ NOWY PORZĄDEK ŚWIATOWY. PRZYPADEK NATO

Jako opis aktualnej sytuacji na świecie może posłużyć jedno słowo – niepewność. Napięcia z niej wynikające są symptomami zmian zachodzących w architekturze porządku światowego. Celem niniejszego artykułu jest zbadanie przyczyn, objawów i kierunków tych zmian. Fundamentem analizy jest obserwowany regres Zachodu. NATO jako strategiczny most łączący dwa jego centra – Europę i Stany Zjednoczone – zostało poddane naukowej eksploracji, by zidentyfikować możliwości jego wykorzystania jako instrumentu przywracającego relatywną siłę Zachodu oraz odtworzenia potencjału określania parametrów wyłaniającego się porządku światowego. Analiza została wzbogacona o dwa scenariusze potencjalnego kierunku transformacji wspomnianego porządku światowego.
