In a nutshell, social constructivism posits a mutually influencing relationship between structure and agency and views international relations as a cognitive process determined by previous experiences and interactions. Actor interests are thus not givens – such as “national survival” in realism or “economic welfare” in liberal theories.

They are the result of the actors’ construction of their own identity and the identity ascribed by them to others.
