Abstract


In this article, the relationship among international actors is understood as a communicative process in which discourse is a central instrument, a perspective that in recent decades has expanded remarkably in International Relations. This plethora has, however, been accompanied by frequent calls for greater methodological clarification in academic work. This article aims to contribute to this purpose, offering an integrated view of discursive approaches in International Relations and presenting an updated picture of context theory.
