Answer by Nikhil Deshmukh:

Keyword: USSR disintegration, End of cold war, New turn in international diplomacy, Critically examine

Akand Sitra has already given beautiful description on how to write answer. I'm adding few extra points, with some repetition to his answer.

[According to me, no introduction needed for this straightforward question]

Unchanged Scenarios:
1. Global arms race is still on. Fear of nuclear war still persists.
2. Structures and biased powers of International organizations – WTO, IMF, WB and UN remains unchanged
3. Many African, Asian and Latin American countries are still underdeveloped
4. Economic and Technological dependency on western countries still exist

Changed Scenarios:
1. From bipolarism, world is slowly moving towards multipolarism, while experiencing a decade of unipolarism (USA, 1991 to 2001)
2. More emphasis on regional co-operation on economic and strategic fronts. Demand for new international economic order is on rise
3. End of ideologies – Capitalism and Communism. World public opinion is favouring democracy
4. Global concerns are on rise – climate change, cyber safety, terrorism and illicit trafficking

Conclusion: With end of cold war, military diplomacy is diminishing, with increase in economic, regional, strategic and Hi-Tech diplomacy

Comments and criticism are welcome.
