Federalism As it relates to European integration, there  is no one scholar attached to federalism Federalism: Power is shared between national and state  governments  At the European level, this would mean that  power is shared between the European Union  and national governments. This is indeed the  case in some policy areas.

Realism Hans Morgenthau The international system is anarchic.  Sovereign states are the principal actors in the  international system.  States are rational unitary actors each moving  towards their own national interest.  The overriding 'national interest' of each state is its  national security and survival.  States strive to amass resources.  Relations between states are determined by their  comparative level of power derived primarily from  their military and economic capabilities.
