Theories of International Relations - Neo-Realism
  • The Neo-Realist paradigm and comparison with the Classical Realism
  • The Neo-realist conceptualisation of the state system
  • The Neo-Realist conceptualisation of state behaviour
the neo realist paradigm
The Neo-realist paradigm
  • Holistic approach: analytical focus of Neo-Realism is the pattern of the state system, hence systemic level of analysis
  • The concept of state: defined in terms of power; states are key units of the international system (unitary actors) that do not differ functionally; they are compelled to act in a certain way
  • Structure-centred approach: explains results that balance-of-power behaviour produces
  • The international institutions: products of distribution of power in the international structure; serve instrumental interests of the powerful states
  • Comparison with the classical realism
the neo realist conceptualisation of the state system
The Neo-Realist conceptualisation of the state system
  • Anarchy, stabilised by a pattern of distribution of power; central feature- power politics
  • Three elements in the conceptualisation of the state system: an ordering principle, functional specification and distribution of capabilities. Balance of power structure predicts behaviour
  • States exhibit little variation of behaviour
  • Stability of the bipolar system
the neo realist conceptualisation of state behaviour
The Neo-Realist conceptualisation of state behaviour
  • International structure and national responses: balancing and bandwagoning behaviour
  • State behaviour in a unipolar world
  • The behaviour of the dominant powers: take on many tasks beyond their borders and being unchecked and unbalanced power tend to misuse power
  • The behaviour of the candidates for becoming of next great powers
  • The behaviour of the weaker states
