This article discusses the unilateral actions taken by the United States against three multilateral organisations, namely, the World Health Organization, the World Trade Organization and the International Criminal Court, which have been at the forefront of the United States’ criticism. The article also evaluates the criticism by the United States against these organisations. Further, the authors have also explored the shortcoming in terms of the structure and functioning of these organisations. These organisations have long relied on the cooperation between their members to fulfil their mandates in addressing global challenges. The United States' actions against these organizations have demonstrated a disregard for multilateralism and a preference for the age-old dictum of ‘might is right’. The actions of the United States must also be seen from the lens of challenges it faces today, particularly from China and other emerging economies. Perhaps, the United States’ actions can be seen as an attempt to counter the diminishing giant syndrome. Thus, it is imperative for other nations to respond by reaffirming their commitment to collective action and shared responsibilities.</em></p> Utkarsh Srivastva Anita Yadav Copyright (c) 2024 Brawijaya Law Journal http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2024-03-05 2024-03-05 11 1
