VARGAS HERNANDEZ, José Guadalupe. El realismo y el neorrealismo estructural. Estud. polít. (Méx.) [online]. 2009, n.16, pp.113-124. ISSN 0185-1616.

The aim of this paper is to analyze the theoretical methodological approaches of realism and neorealism or structural realism. It departs from the assumption that the realist theory helps to solve the social fragilities and challenges in the context of a conservative ideology and from an elitist theory of democracy. The realist approach competes with the neorealist or structural realism and the institutionalist theory. Neorealism and institutionalism conceptions of institutions consider that these are functional needs to generate order. However, neither the realist theory nor the institutionalism treat properly the variations of time and space.

Keywords : Institutions; neorealism; realism; institucionalism; theorical approache.
