The term Western world or "the West" (also on rare occasions called the Occident) can have multiple meanings depending on its context (i.e. the time period and the used criteria). Even definitions of what constitutes the West today vary. In general however there is a consensus that the West includes at least Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States, and Western Europe.

In other definitions, Eastern Europe, Latin America, Japan, Turkey, and Israel are often included, as their cultures are closely linked.
