Complex interdependence is the
crucial concept of liberalism. If
Liberalism believes in democracy, cooperation, mutual
benefits, and human rights, then complex
interdependence helps the states to achieve these ideals.
Moreover, it also minimizes the chances of conflict and
war. The military’s role as a tool of foreign policy is
limited, and transnational actors take precedence. The
core of liberalism and interdependence could be
understood more clearly if one applied it to the European
Union. With 28 member states, the EU is the most
influential intergovernmental organization in the whole
world. The EU member states are mostly democratic and
can easily be described as welfare states. The multiplex
interdependence is a unique feature of the EU which
makes it stronger. The EU has different organs which are
responsible for drafting the legislature and carrying out
different functions of the organization.
