This project intends to consider the habermasian theory as an important milestone for the reconstruction of theoretical discourse of International Relations, which has been broken since the end of the Cold War with the breakup of the infallible nature of the current balance of power. To identify and demonstrate a theory of International Relations in the context of habermasian theory, will be observed the importance of normative structures, of reason and moral as guiding elements of social constructions. Besides the analysis of the importance of communicative action, the constitutional patriotism and democratic dialogue for the interactions in the international system. Habermas's responses to the challenges of globalization will be evaluated for glimpse of a possible path to emancipation in international relations, respecting multiculturalism and Human Rights. This perspective comes from the Habermas's dialogical argumentation, which seeks the communicative reason in modern world, in a post-national context and validates the evaluatives claims. (AU)
