Concept in International Relations

1. Anarchy is a major concept in International Relations. What is it? Why is it important in studying international relations? How do each of the theories we studied (realism, constructivism, liberalism, marxism, feminism) define anarchy? Do they agree at all?
2. You are the UN High Commissioned for Human Rights. You need to build out a team of advisors to support you in your new role. What benefits come from individuals that hold each of the major theories that we’ve covered in class? (I.e. what is the benefit of having a constructivist? A realist? A liberal? A marxist? A feminist? on your team). Is there any theoretical world view that you will purposely exclude from your team? Why? Any that you want to overly emphasize? Why?
