A Transformation of Trickle-down Pattern and Theory for Application:A Case Study of International Relations

After the debate stage of grand theories,theoretical research on international relations began to enter a relatively stagnant stage.At the same time,the international community lacks adequate theoretical support for dealing with international issues such as climate change,counterterrorism and ethnic conflict management,therefore,the tension between the practical needs and theoretical research is increasingly apparent.At present,the study of the international relations has roughly formed an interactive pattern of the three parties,in which the university is the center to create theoretical knowledge that trickles down to the decision-making department by theoretical research on policy of the think tank.However,since the study of the theory of international relations has been committed to grand theories for a long time,this trickle-down pattern cannot provide a more specific theoretical guidance for solving problems and making policy.Under the current circumstances,while the researchers of international relations theory are participating in a macro-level meta-theoretical discussion,the decision-making department needs to create opportunities for the researchers to enter the question field and support for the researchers to carry out the construction of middle-level theories of the mechanism of problem occurrence,which can alleviate the issue of the irrelevance of the theory and policy to some extent.
