Science Diplomacy together with other new concepts of ‘transnational public–private partnership’ and ‘trans-governmentalism’ are discussed as responding to the public challenges of a globalised world. The volume takes a global governance perspective on the topic of science diplomacy, including the wide range of public-sector activities managed by transnational policy communities and criticises holding on domestic logics of policy making in light of the immense impact of globalisation. This Element goes beyond traditional texts which focus on public policy as an activity of states to outline how global policy making has driven many global and regional transformations over the past quarter century.
