Science diplomacy in the globalized world: conceptualization of the phenomenon

Keywords: Science Diplomacy, Public Diplomacy, National Interests, Science for Diplomacy, Diplomacy for Science, Science in Diplomacy

Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of the formation of the concept and determination of the meaning and manifestations of scientific diplomacy – one of the types of public diplomacy. The authors reviews the process of forming the definition of the concept, attempts to establish the features of the manifestations of scientific diplomacy in international relations, and considers the content of the triad: «science for diplomacy», «diplomacy for science», «science in diplomacy».

The authors highlighted the process of formation of science diplomacy as a subject of research, the relationship between the possibilities of achieving science diplomacy of the state’s goals related to its national interests, participation in transnational cooperation and solving global problems. The areas of practical application of science diplomacy as a tool for protecting national interests, the use of science to reduce tensions between countries, the establishment of international cooperation through scientific projects in cases where such interaction is impossible in a political context were also identified.

The directions of action of science diplomacy in security and other spheres of human interaction are considered. Identified areas in which the use of scientific diplomacy is desirable, but so far insufficient.

The authors came to the conclusion that science diplomacy as a science direction, despite the relatively short period of development, is sufficiently developed both in terms of the conceptual apparatus and the theoretical study of individual issues. However, there is a need for further development of theoretical research, which will take into account the proposals of practitioners of scientific diplomacy.
