Summary/Abstract: The 1990s have been the most productive years in the discipline of International Relations and in this period the Constructivist theory appeared to be the new alternative to Neorealism. Constructivism in International Relations was introduced by Alexander Wendt whose works on Constructivism have deeply influenced theoretical approaches in the following years. In this article, the main debate between Neorealism and Constructivism is analyzed and a critique of Systemic Constructivism developed by Alexander Wendt was presented. In the following sections, an interactive approach, which takes into account the domestic factors that are important for the formation of state identity, is developed.
