French term or phrase: multipolaire
C'est un discours sur le soft-power et l'influence du langage.

Le soft power américain est durablement affaibli aujourd'hui par trois facteurs. Le premier est le désastre militaire et culturel qu'a représenté l'équipée aventureuse de l'invasion de l'Irak. Le deuxième est la crise mondiale qui a plus qu'ébranlé l'absolutisme des marchés, idéologie dominante des trente dernières années. Le troisième est l'émergence d'un monde multipolaire.

multipolar
Explanation:
It translates pretty directly.

In this case, it's referring to definition #3 (see the link). The meaning of a 'multipolar world' is that America isn't the only superpower in the world anymore.
