The paper compares the rational and the constructivist approach to the study of international political economy (IPE). In doing so, the papers focuses on the ontological and epistemological features that allows distinguishing between the two approaches. This distinction is further itemized in the illustration of the two main, contemporary IPE schools: the American and the British school. The article concludes by reflecting on the modalities through which recent studies have attempted to reconcile the rational and the constructivist approach.
