The 2003 Iraq war, which symbolized certain states' republican determination to take control of affairs regardless of external opinion, involved the invaders in years of bloody civil unrest. Within Europe, varying responses to the frequently ambiguous political significance of the European Union complicate republican ideas, often beyond recognition. Neo-conservatism, republicanism, and the republican themes within neo-conservatism focus on problems of practical politics.

The internationally active non-governmental organizations of the type that commonly advocate cosmopolitan arguments in the West made a debut in a disputed presidential election in Ukraine. Ukrainian-based organizations such as the Committee of Voters of Ukraine drew on funds, organizational experience and rhetorical support from international groups such as the National Endowment for Democracy to challenge poll results that would have installed Viktor Yanukovich as president.
