The Monroe Doctrine, expressed in 1823,
proclaimed the United States' opinion that
European powers should no longer colonize the
Americas or interfere with the affairs of
sovereign nations located in the Americas, such
as the United States of America, Mexico, and
others.

  • In return, the United States planned to stay
    neutral in wars between European powers and in
    wars between a European power and its colonies.
    However, if these latter type of wars were to
    occur in the Americas, the U.S. would view such
    action as hostile toward itself.

  • The doctrine was issued by President James Monroe
    during his seventh annual State of the Union
    address to Congress. It was met first with doubt,
    then with enthusiasm. This was a defining moment
    in the foreign policy of the United States.

5
  • The doctrine was conceived by its authors,
    especially John Quincy Adams, as a proclamation
    by the United States of moral opposition to
    colonialism, but has subsequently been
    re-interpreted in a wide variety of ways,
    including by President Theodore Roosevelt as a
    license for the U.S. to practice its own form of
    colonialism known as the Roosevelt Corollary to
    the Monroe Doctrine
