Activists, politicians, and commentators often use the term in calling for action to be taken; e.g., action against what is in their opinion "political repression in a target country.

The term is commonly used to imply consensus for a point of view on a disputed issue; e.g., to enhance the credibility of a majority vote in the "United Nations General Assembly.

Interpretations[edit]

"Noam Chomsky has noted the use of the term to refer to the "United States and its "client states and allies in the media of those states.[1][2][3] The scholar and academic "Martin Jacques says: "We all know what is meant by the term 'international community', don't we? It's the "west, of course, nothing more, nothing less. Using the term 'international community' is a way of dignifying the west, of globalising it, of making it sound more respectable, more neutral and high-faluting."[4] Chomsky has written that the phrase international community means Washington, which is more limited than the west or even United States of America.["citation needed]
