Relationship Between State Capacity and Achieved Status in the System of International Relations
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)

2018
This research is devoted to examining the relationship between state capacity and the status which states is able to achieve in international relations and world politics. Initially, the categories were conceptualized and operationalized, then empirical assessments of the aspects of the state's institutional capabilities and status were found using factor analysis methods. Later, using a regression analysis, taking into account the panel structure of data, a working hypothesis was tested about the positive relationship between state capacity and the achieved status in the system of international relations and its empirical confirmation was found. In other words, the increase in the state's institutional capacity could potentially be concerned with an increasing recognition of the state by other actors in the system of international relations (issues of causality are not affected in this research). This statement is valid only for the composite index of state capacity, and not for its separate aspects, which also confirms the working hypothesis.
