Change has so far been a neglected dimension in the study of international re - lations. However, authors like Gilpin, Buzan, Wendt have put forward theories of international change that explain only one part of the picture or one type of change in the international system. This variety of approaches and the annalist approach to history make us think of the complex dynamics of processes that take place at different levels. Using the framework of complexity theory I propose to make use of an interaction of different theories and try to analyse the current trends of change in world politics.
