The study of the pattern of great powers' behavior in international crises management is worth attention for researchers specially when in the post-Cold War era the structure of international system has undergone change and has become complicated. In the present article the authors want to apply structural realism theory for analyzing the pattern of Syrian crises management by the great powers in the uni-multipolar system. According to structural realism, the change in the structure of international system from bipolar in the Cold War era to unipolar, and after that to uni-multipolar has led to the change of processes of international system and as a result of these changes (structure and process) of the pattern of great powers behavior and crisis management would be different. The main question of this article is that how the characteristic of the uni-multipolar system have affected the great power's behavior pattern in dealing with the management of the Syria's crisis? On this basis, the article by adopting explanatory-analytical approach and with the library based methodology wants to examine the hypothesis that the constraints of the uni-multipolar system has turned the great powers' pattern of behavior into asymmetrical balance of power in the sphere of international politics and specially in dealing with Syria's crisis management. The asymmetrical balance of power as a pattern of behavior makes use of different tools like institutional tool, coalition, aggression and sanction to manage the crises. The level of research analysis in the article according to structural realism theory is the third image or international system level.
