U.S. confirms withdrawal from U.N.E.S.C.O at the end of 2017.
After the proposed withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, and the lukewarm words regarding the U.N. and N.A.T.O, what does the future hold for U.S. engagement with the rest of the world on global issues? If Trump wins a second term to take him through to 2025, will these organisations continue to operate in anything like the way the do so today, or even cease to exist at all?. Is this a coordinated plan as part of increased U.S. isolationism, or just the Trump administration addressing the disproportionate amount they feel the U.S. contributes to global matters? Do we value organisations such as these in their current form, or are they relatively worthless as countries pay increasingly less attention to what they supposedly stand for in terms of human rights, rule of law, diplomatic resolutions etc? Will anyone miss the 'World's Policemen' - and will any other country choose to occupy the space vacated by the U.S. in recent years?
