In this first part of our discussion board, each of you is going to choose a theory that is discussed in chapter three of the book. It can be realism, liberalism, radicalism, or constructivism (the reason I’ve not included feminism is that it’s more of a critique of the other theories rather than a standalone theory of its own). You can choose whichever one you want.
You shouldn’t need anything other than the book and the videos in Module 2 to do this assignment, but you can also use other internet sources if you would like, so long as they are reputable. Ideally, please post your response below rather than uploading it as a word document/PDF, since that’s harder for your classmates to read. I would like you to compose a 300-500 word post that summarizes the following about your theory:
1) What are the basics of your theory? What does your theory think are the most important things to pay attention to in international relations? What is the role of the state in your theory?
2) What do you find compelling about your theory? What makes it believable?
3) What do you find unbelievable or unrealistic about your theory?
You can score up to 20 points based on your use of evidence, the thoroughness and accuracy of your answer, and your correct usage of grammar/spelling.
