This thesis examines Austria in the era of Metternich and the Concert of Europe. My aim is to test the theory of offensive realism and find out if Austria behaved according to the assumptions of that theory. The title of the thesis refers to both the theory of offensive realism and the status quo policies of conservatism that Austria and Metternich were emblematic of. In that context the potential impact of nationalism and liberalism on Austria and the overall balance of power is investigated. The theory is tested using process tracing and it is my conclusion that the theory of offensive realism has strong explanatory value for Austria in that era. This conclusion is to a certain extent dependant on the status of unobservable causal mechanisms.
