The Commission on Science Technology & Diplomacy is inviting scholars to submit papers for an upcoming workshop from July 19-20 at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Call for papers:
Diplomats in science diplomacy: Promoting scientific and technological collaboration in international relations.
Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark, July 19-20
Abstract: In recent years the notion of science diplomacy has attracted scholars from a variety of disciplines. Yet there is still much to explore in regards to its history and in particular about how science and technology have increasingly become important devices in the administration of foreign affairs. What we lack of, in particular, is an examination of the role of those diplomats who, in embassies and consulates, began to use science diplomacy more frequently in the routine ambassadorial practice of mediating and negotiating between administrations. Who were they? Why did they consider science and technology as a viable device in these negotiations? What networks did they exploit to further their efforts?
Type of submission: Abstracts (250 words max) and a short CV (100 words max) to the Commission’s Secretary, Matthew Adamson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Submission deadline: 1st March 2019
