’17 Talk IR Theory

During our recent meeting, I took the ‘17s through the theories of international relations I have been teaching to the ‘20s for the past semester. I presented a quick “crash course” on realism, liberalism, and constructivism: the three primary lenses through which political scientists and policy makers view the behaviors of actors. Additionally, using instances provided in current events and recent history, I attempted to defend my thesis that current policy as it stands is out of touch with twenty first century realities, such as the growth of non-state actors and asymmetry in actors’ interactions.
