7.1.4 Historical Case Studies from InsSciDE

S4D4C’s sister project InsSciDE – ‘Inventing a shared Science Diplomacy for Europe’
has been invited to showcase two case studies in this online training: “Designing a European Health Diplomacy” (see Lesson 7.6) and “UN Convention on the Law of the Sea” (see Lesson 7.7).

A member with S4D4C and EL-CSID of the Horizon 2020 EU Science Diplomacy Cluster, InsSciDE brings together historians, STS scholars, political scientists, archaeologists, trainers and public engagement specialists from 11 countries and UNESCO. The researchers critically investigate Europe’s science diplomacy ‘capital’ through two dozen case histories spanning more than three centuries and a broad range of topics.

To complement the S4D4C cases presented in this online training course, InsSciDE presents historical studies of Health Diplomacy and Environmental Diplomacy:

  • the roots of Global Health Diplomacy in the management of the 1899 plague epidemic in Oporto
  • the co-production by scientists and diplomats in the 1960-70s of new definitions for global ocean space so that it could be governed in new more expansive and potentially equitable ways.

The InsSciDE main contact is:

Claire Mays

Executive Director, H2020 InsSciDE.eu, and Institut Symlog
