The process of organising relations between groups of three or more states is called multilateralism. Some certain qualities and principles are associated with multilateralisms such as a commitment to reciprocate, the indivisibility of interest among participants and a mechanism to settle disputes to enforce a particular mode of behaviour. Multilateralism emerged post World War II and this movement was led primarily by the United States.
Multilateralism is important for maintaining global peace and security it broadly encompasses treaties, agreements, security, and intelligence sharing and trade agreements.

Following the ambitious Paris Agreement of 2015 that places a cap on the increase in global temperature to 2 above pre-industrial levels, and aims to reduce it to 1.5by the end of this century, a meeting was held in Fairbanks Alaska in March 2016 to address the implications of the measures taken by the council[1].
