A detailed explanation ofConstructivism as a concept of ethnicity
Constructivism is a sociological theory that seeks to demonstrate how concepts of international relations are socially constructed. It primarily explains how social processes and interactions form the primary aspects of culture. Constructivist research on social sciences reveal that ethnic identities change over time, and they are products of political and economic phenomena that explain such identities. Ethnic groups emerge and disappear, grow and shrink. Hence, ethnic demographies that define the groups are fluid. If a state's ethnic demography changes over time, sociologists propose that it is crucial to ensure that the processes generating such changes are u related to the outcome that the country's ethnic demography should explain.
