Constructivism, as a theoretical framework, emphasizes the significance of ideas, norms, and identities in shaping global politics. This perspective challenges traditional realist and liberal paradigms, highlighting how perceptions and beliefs influence state behavior, international cooperation, and the formation of international institutions. In recent years, constructivism has gained prominence as it underscores the importance of non-material factors, such as culture, ideology, and collective narratives, in redefining global power dynamics and fostering new modes of diplomacy. This review explores the ways in which constructivism has contributed to a nuanced understanding of international relations, offering valuable insights into the evolving landscape of a new world order that transcends mere power politics.
