The study of international relations provides a comprehensive understanding of the significant issues that our globalised world faces. In his book ‘International Relations Theories’, Steve Smith proposes that “theories are like different coloured lenses: if you put one of them in front of your eyes, you will see things differently” (Smith, Kurki and Dunne, 2016: 11). In light of this, there are various currents in international relations, with each a different viewpoint on the Syrian conflict. Realism approaches a dissimilar perspective than constructivism do.
