"...but that there is absolutely nothing inherent to constructivist theory that requires it to be politically liberal."

I'm not sure whether we agree or disagree. I think the former. There's a difference between describing constructivism's current location (in the field, ideologically) and arguing about whether its core wagers necessarily imply those positions.

It might be interesting to contemplate what a "Burkean" constructivism would look like. Snyder's anarchy and culture article might fit the bill.

Anyway, it will warm your hear to know that I have a post on norms forthcoming. Do tell us more about the conference.


Both are idealistic and anti-Realpolitik, cuz what I said.
