SCHENONI, Luis L.. Theoretical preconceptions and the formulation of foreign politics: critical reflections based on the Afghanistan' case. Andamios [online]. 2011, vol.8, n.16, pp.187-210. ISSN 1870-0063.

This article tries to assess the real utility of the concept of "State" to explain certain issues of international politics, considering its importance within mainstream International Relations theories, and to policy makers in general. The current conflict in Afghanistan will serve as case study arguing that the present intervention can not be thought in terms of statehood, because it involves some social realities that are completely different from those of modern Western history. Finally, we will try to explain how dealing with these misperceptions and accepting a broader conception can influence strategic thought and generate new options to solve the conflict.

Palabras llave : Afghanistan; Pakistan; AfPak; International Relations Theory; State.
