Science Diplomacy Case studies

During the course of the S4D4C and InsSciDE project, experts investigated science diplomacy from the lenses of different times, topics, and spaces. Those case studies are all available on this website:

S4D4C Case Studies
In the course of the S4D4C  project, a range of nine science diplomacy cases were investigated. A mixed team of researchers have developed nine case studies, which each provide an overview of the case and its background, context and governance arrangements, further providing a description of the stakeholder landscape and a discussion of governance practices. They look at the EU level as well as selected examples from the national level that vary case to case. The case studies examine the use of knowledge, the relations between governance levels and provide a discussion on how the case improves or changes our ...
InsSciDE Case Studies
The InsSciDE project sought to develop an in-depth understanding of EU science diplomacy experience through historical research that plots the practices, stakes and networks of actors involved in cases of science diplomacy spanning the 19th century to present day. InsSciDE will produce 24 case studies associated with five themes under the umbrella of science diplomacy: Heritage, Health, Security, Environment and Space, as well as the transversal research strand Science Diplomats. Below you can find the studies published so far in the form of scientific publications. In the final phase of the project, the cases will be consolidated and harmonized into ...
