Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine

Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine

Before you begin this assignment, please review the course materials from the first three weeks of class with a special focus on the three mainstream theoretical perspectives: realism, liberalism and constructivism. Please pay particular attention to the definition of each and avoid pairing them with domestic perceptions of conservatives, liberals, etc. I also recommend reviewing the week 2 forum.

For this assignment you will choose a world event. You can choose one of the ones listed below or come up with your own.   Explain which states are involved, if there are any non-state actors, international governmental organizations  or non governmental organizations involved in the conflict. Also identify a few of the key individuals involved.  Then lastly, and here’s the tricky part, decide which theory would best explain the event and explain your choice. Be sure to define the theory.  Your response should be 3 – 5 paragraphs.
