Abstract

The structural changes in the international system and the distribution of power on the international stage following the collapse of the Soviet Union of Socialist Republics (USSR) have undergone serious changes. Since the end of World War II, the United States has risen to a stronger international power and entered a period known as the “Unipolar Era” in the early 1990s. American elites attempt to legitimize their actions by actively praising their country's power over the international system. However, the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 undermined its legitimacy and credibility, as the tendency to use military force indicated a lack of legitimacy at a time when new powers such as Russia and China emerged from other parts of the world. That is why many people talk about the end of the unipolar era but are skeptical about the nature of the international system in the post-unipolar era. The question of this study is what is the structure of the international system in the coming decades? The main hypothesis of the study is, regarding the four dimensions of power related to this issue that the future international system will be in a turbulent time and no single power can have absolute control over the world.
