Special Issue – Science Diplomacy

Special Issue – Science Diplomacy

The past decade has witnessed the emergence of science diplomacy, both as a formalized set of operations and new field of study and research. A number of factors are driving this trend, but central is the recognition that more and more, major challenges are international in nature and that science and its applications are part of the cause as well as the cure. As a result, while much of the international science regime is still focused on discovery, there is an increasing demand for the integration of science cooperation in international relations. This special issue provides a overview of the evolution of science diplomacy, explores recent developments and unpacks burning issues.
