INTERNATIONAL POLITIC
          “South” Vision of World Relations from a
          structural-systemic-realistic point of view
          without underrating the rich theoretic-epistemologic
          development that has been taken ahead in the "North"

Objectives

The central objetct of this hompage is to search methodologies and forms of debate in order to establish clear rules about how to think rationally on the facts, processes and fenomena, in a world and a stage of the world relationships, whose central characteristic is the dynamics of change and the uncerteinty.

Given this dynamic of great change, there are more questions to ask than answers to the phenomena observed. The answers that we gave to the phenomena of the last fifty years, in which the bipolar system prevailed - now nonexistent - no longer serve us to understand the actuality and its tendencies; questions changed.

It is based on this that I seek to develop a theory of the International Relations from a totalizing perspective, in the one that not only be reflected the stability, but also the change and in the one that are not only represented those that have power, but also, those that lack it, which are more than the two thirds of the members of the world system. The development of this theory is from a realist-systemic-structural perspective.

When I speak of realism, I go beyond the "reality" that one lives in the different areas of the planet. I make reference to a "cosmovisión” and as such, it is "totalizator". Realistic theories exist, but the realism is not a theory, it is a cosmovisión, and as such, it cannot vary essentially, depending on the areas, the countries or the power what they have. The realistic theories are those that are developed starting from this cosmovisión. There is not a realism of the periphery and another of the center, beyond the different realities.

This theoretical development has been reflected in the books I present on this page, the result of years of research, papers published in specialized scientific journals and in documents.

One of the books, "The World Order of the XXI Century", is the base of this theory of the World Relationships and it is supplemented by others:

Another that complement the theoretical development initiated and shows the form in that the world system is "governed", its characteristics of the functioning, particularly the forms that the system is adopting, attending to the structure of power: "Tendencies of World Order: International Regime"; and another, showing the theoretical-epistemological development, directed mainly to the problems of those countries without power and the ability -or not- being active participants in the increasingly complex, global system: "Systemic-Estrucural-Realism: The Foreign Policy as Power Construction”.

Other two, speaks of: the "Evolution of the Theoretical-Epistemological Debate on World Relationships", while one older (1981), it is dedicated to analyze “The Problematic of World Order” -and disorder-.

The theoretical development goes accompanied by analysis of concrete, current and historical facts, reflected in: "Reshaping World Order: the End of a 'Macro-Stage'" and "The Construction of an Imperial World Order".

Inside this complex thematic, is approached the peaceful negotiation of international and internal conflicts, with transcendence or international consequences, trying to find the space of "justice" within the framework of the establishment or reestablishment of "order". Resulting from these studies has been a new book: "Peace or Pax" in Latin America: Conflict in Colombia.

Another important issue is that of "United States-Latin America Relations" in the Inter-American System, from 1823-26 (Monroe Doctrine and Simón Bolívar's Proposal), which was my doctoral thesis and then I turned it into a book. I have a different perspective than the traditional one; A scientific analysis accompanied with abundant documentation.

Also, I incorporate a "debate" area, where I treat of showing those facts, processes and phenomena that require discussion and analysis, linked to the global, regional and even local problems, from the international politics's perspective or of the foreign policy. It searches to feed the rational exchange and to show diverse perspectives that can enrich and even to modify the taking of decisions. The debate topics are plentiful and they arise every day, caused by the dynamics of change that characterizes to the world system of our days. Some represent the situation, others mark the start of new trends that will be given in the future world order.

This is an opportunity to exchange ideas, think rational and scientifically, and at the same time, contribute with all those who want to be introduced in a thematic one, attractive and complex and they find difficulty to carry out a career or a course on International Politics.

The books can contribute, to a certain extent, to develop "distance education" in such a spoken and handled area but in very few cases treated with depth, rationality and scientific way.

And more topics that, I believe that all need, to know and to analyze the world relationships:

Regional integration; International treaties or Constitutive Cartes of International Organizations as the United Nations, OAS or others; international negotiation, where it is looked for to analyze the mechanisms for the peaceful solution of the conflicts, beyond the methodologies settled down by the international right, and to outline some simulation games to know how this process works whose importance is growing in the world and even at State level.

Of course, cannot lack the analysis of the regions:

The Asian World, with its particular qualities, power and growing influences in the future characteristics of the world order; in the same way that their crisis situations. If the XIX century was characterized by a world whose "motor" was Europe, and the XX century had the "motor", in the case of the western block, in USA and in that of the oriental block, in the USSR; the world of the XXI century will surely be "motorized" by the world of Asia and the Pacific.

Can't lack the European Union that has become a "world power" and, in the present, with the Euro, in a great competitor and motor of the world finances and trade.

Equally important is the Middle East, a region so important for its oil, so rich in culture, with a long history, but crossed by innumerable conflicts and interventions of foreign powers.

Africa, a continent known mainly for its conflicts, underdevelopment and poverty, and for the neglect of the needs of its people not only on the part of many of its leaders, but also on the international community, especially the former colonial Powers.

And of course, Latin America, one of the areas more studied by no-Latin Americans. American, European and even Asiatic, they have bigger knowledge of Latin America that the own Latin Americans who live backs to their region.

This page seeks to cover, in Spanish, any concern about an issue as important and complex as international politics and its theoretical development, while educating; And will grow in the measure of creativity and demands.
