What is Science Diplomacy?

The most extended definition, set by the Royal Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2010, refers to science diplomacy as consisting of three linked strands:

Science in Diplomacy

Where scientific know-how and evidence is used to inform and support foreign policy objectives.

Diplomacy for Science

Where diplomatic efforts and resources are aimed at facilitating international scientific and technical cooperation.

Science for Diplomacy

Where scientific cooperation is used as a source of soft power to strengthen or foster foreign relations.
