International Relations (IR) scholars have come to recognize that state behavior in the international system is not driven solely by the “distribution of power,” but also depends on the “distribution of identities.” Despite this major theoretical advance, many scholars carry on as if identities do not matter. This leads to a systematic omitted variable bias that adversely impacts not only much of IR scholarship but also how the policy community conceptualizes and analyzes both security and non-security issues in world politics. Making Identity Count endeavors to build a constructivist, intersubjective database of all great power identities from 1950 to 2020 that will become the source for IR scholars who wish to include constructivist arguments in their scholarship. The purpose of this session is to evaluate the strengths and weakness of this project.
