ABSTRACT
This article sheds light on the current debates on the Planetary Politics Manifesto in order to better locate Green Theory in International Relations. In particular, it aims to go beyond the “problem-solving vs critical theories” binary that is observed in the studies on the location of Green Theory in the discipline. Therefore, rather than comparing Green Theory with the mainstream theories of International Relations, it focuses on the complex relationship between Green Theory and major critical theories such as Constructivism, Normative Theory, Poststructuralism, Critical Theory, Postcolonialism and Feminism from the perspective of the Planetary Politics Manifesto. 

Keywords: Green Theory, Critical Theory, Planetary Politics, Ecocentrism, Ecofeminism
