Social Constructivism, as a new approach in International Relation, especially after 1980's began to gain importance. Apart from Neorealism and Neoliberalism, which considered material oriented approaches, Social Constructivism emphasize on the role of identity, norms and ideas in the structure of international politics. As a method of studying social relations Social Constructivism gave a different meaning to the issue of social structure. According to some constructivists, "Social world is not a given world, it is a made of world." Constructivism is not seen as new approach, as an old methodology its roots goes back to the Italian philosopher Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) and Immanuel Kant (1724-1804).
