A mixed team of researchers from across different disciplines (political science, diplomacy, law, sociology, and science and technology studies) within the S4D4C consortium have conducted nine case studies between June 2018 and December 2019.
The S4D4C project looks at science diplomacy from a European perspective in the context of global challenges. Each case study provides an overview of the topic and its background, context, the stakeholder landscape and a discussion of governance practices and arrangements. They look at different government-levels (International Organisations, EU, Member States, etc.) and examine the use of knowledge, the relations between the different levels and provide a discussion on how the case improves or changes our understanding of science diplomacy.
The case selection was based on viewing the intersection of science and policy from three distinct angles, defined by the primary drivers and areas of uncertainty within the scientific and political systems.
You will see in the following video the criteria we followed to select these cases.
