    My opinion there are NO theories(hard and fast rules) in IR just concepts and hypothesis really. The real practitioners of IR, most of them do not have formal training in IR and these people are in the positions of power, they just use their experience and some rational think if it permits, the rest of the decisions are made by the Secretary of states or the President in most situations have no background in IR.
    Those with training in IR are either academics of working for think tanks.

    Each theory seems to work for certain aspects of international relations, putting emphasis on some and ignoring others. Isn't there a more holistic approach which acknowledges the value of both national egoism, military power, ideas and social constructions, states and international institutions, anarchic systems and economic interdependence ? What do you think about the Enligh School of IR (liberal realism) ?
