Handbook on Science and Public Policy

Edited by Dagmar Simon, Stefan Kuhlmann, Julia Stamm and Weert Canzler

This Handbook assembles state-of-the-art insights into the co-evolutionary and precarious relations between science and public policy. Beyond this, it also offers a fresh outlook on emerging challenges for science (including technology and innovation) in changing societies, and related policy requirements, as well as the challenges for public policy in view of science-driven economic, societal, and cultural changes. In short, this book deals with science as a policy-triggered project as well as public policy as a science-driven venture.

Chapter 6: The current state of the art of science diplomacy

Tim Flink and Nicolas Rüffin


We are witnessing a rising interest in the concept of science diplomacy across the globe. The chapter sheds light on the origins of the term, introduces prevalent definitions, and identifies four driving forces which push the development of science diplomacy. Subsequently, we highlight the similarities and differences of activities in France, Germany, the UK, the USA, and by the European Commission. With no common denominator of science diplomacy, several understandings of the concept exist in parallel within and across countries. Lastly, we focus our attention on prospects and challenges for science diplomacy.
