Science Diplomacy: New Day or False Dawn?.pdf
As modern foreign policy and international relations encompass more and more scientific issues, we are moving towards a new type of diplomacy, known as "Science Diplomacy". Will this new diplomacy of the 21st century prove to be more effective than past diplomacy for the big issues facing the world, such as climate change, globalization, terrorism, mineral exploitation, health and international scientific endeavors such as those in the space and the Antarctic? Providing a new area of academic focus that has only gathered momentum in the last few years, this book considers these questions by bringing together a distinguished team of international specialists to look at various facets of how diplomacy and science are influenced by each other. The book will not only dissect the ways that politics, science and diplomacy have become intertwined, but also highlight how the world's seemingly most intractable problems can be tackled with international collaboration and diplomacy that is rooted in science. It, therefore, will challenge the conventional wisdom concerning the juxtaposition of science and the world of diplomacy.
