CERVO, Amado Luiz. Concepts in International Relations. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2008, vol.51, n.2, pp.8-25. ISSN 0034-7329.

Theories of International Relations are neither free from bias nor impartial. They are linked to specific interests, values, and patterns of conduct in certain societies which constitute their field of observation. They discard these factors of other societies. So, the theories which serve the First World are not convenient, necessarily, to emerging countries. This text proposes to substitute theories by concepts applied to the field of the study of international relations. Concepts expose the national or regional roots on which they stand. The Brazilian experience furnishes the observation base for the study's data gathering. This collection of concepts has two functions historically attributed to theory courses: providing explanations and values.

Palabras clave : International Theory; International Concepts; Brazilian concepts on International Relations.
