THE SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIVIST IR THEORY
  • Concept and theoretical propositions
  • Social ontology and holistic epistemology
  • Core concepts: identities, interests and socialization.
  • Foci: ideas and power; international socialization; and the process of social construction.
  • Causal mechanisms: the mechanism and process of social construction
  • Explanatory mechanisms. Methodologies.
constructivist theoretical propositions and concepts
Constructivist theoretical propositions and concepts
  • Theoretical propositions:
  • ideal (social) nature of the world system; international system and states are thought of as structures of beliefs and knowledge;
  • Ideational properties of the political actor are produced and reproduced in a cognitive and intersubjective process of interaction;
  • Core constructivist concepts
  • Identities: issue-specific, relatively stable understandings and expectations about self;
  • Interests: ideas about the means for preservation and reproduction of identity;
  • Socialization: a process of interaction, where political actors’ identities and interests get constructed and reconfigured.
constructivist foci
Constructivist foci
  • Interplay of ideas and power: ideas although key explanatory variables, are not autonomous from power: rhetorical action; arguing and bargaining; and framing and shaming.
  • Global norms versus local effects: international socialization- the effect of systemic norms on domestic politics; the role of the international institutions; the role of the domestic context.
  • Mechanisms and processes of social construction: norm diffusion, learning, argumentation and coercion.
mechanisms and processes of social construction norm transfer and internalization
Mechanisms and processes of social construction- norm transfer and internalization
  • Norm diffusion: occurs on the public arena, politicized process
  • Learning: takes place within private (organizational) settings, non-political process
  • Argumentative mode of social construction: argumentation, persuasion, and deliberation
  • Coercion
