Abstract:  On the basis of analyzing major theoretical schools on international relations including Realism, Liberalism and Constructivism, the author has identified 3 levels of analyzing factors: individual, nation and system. The research reveals that Vietnam-Israel relations are influenced by those factors at different levels. While the relations are not much impacted by individuals, they can be affected at national levels with such factors as domestic situation, national identity, two sides’ needs and historical factors. Strongly-affecting factors of Vietnam-Israel relations at system level include multi-polarity, methods of gathering forces, strategic competition among major powers, globalization, scientific and technological revolution, global and security issues.
