Polarity refers to the distribution of power in the international community and thus describes the nature of the international system. The most important debate of polarity is the relevance between polarity and stability of the international system and regional system. So the polarity of the structure of international system and its relevance to the peace and stability of the international system are important issues of research. Because polarity is the most comprehensive and common concept in the realist paradigm, so the author of the research attempts to apply the theory of Kenneth Waltz's structural realism and one of his main arguments, the distribution of power, for analyzing the instability and conflict in the west of Asia, after the bipolar structure of the Cold War period. According to Kenneth Waltz's views on the distribution of power and polarity, the bipolar structure of the Cold War period brought about a stable and peaceful system. But with the end of the Cold War and the bipolar structure, west of Asia entered a wave of various conflicts, including inter-state conflicts, inter-identity conflicts, and conflicts between states and non-state groups. The main question, then, is what effect has the structure of the international system had on the escalation of conflict in the West Asian region?Community Verified iconThe results of the research indicate that, ambiguity in polarity of the structure of international system has led to instability and conflict in the region of west of Asia. In this article research method is descriptive- analytic and data collection tool is qualitative.
