Forum Shopping Strategy
An appropriate agenda for American foreign policy will be to promote a world populated by a large number of overlapping and sometimes competitive international institutions, what can be labeled multi-multilateralism. In this world the United Nations will not disappear, but it would become one of several organizations that fostered legitimate and effective international action.
…. a multiplicity of geographically and functionally overlapping institutions will permit the United States and other powers to “forum shop” for an appropriate instrument to facilitate international cooperation.”
