Compare two theories or concepts from the course by applying them to a current event or international issue. The goal here is to evaluate how well the theories or concepts explain or describe your topic. A simple approach is to compare realism and liberalism, but the assignment is flexible. See course notes and relevant textbook chapter(s) for other theory and concept ideas. For current events ideas, you might review some of the Resource Collections as a starting point. Here is my Abstract: Understanding that we live in a world surrounded by authority, we can better understand the reason for these principles by identifying the problems at hand. The decisions that are made can be analyzed by the theories revolving around idealism, while looking at the realities of realism. Looking at various dynamics that regulate states behaviors, this paper will highlight the attempts in which realism and idealism handle the anarchy of the international system. This paper will also look at various intuitions like the United Nations, European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization that have been created to form international policy.
