Science diplomacy is a fast-growing area of foreign policy and soft power focused on better understanding and reinforcing the connections between science, technology, and international affairs in order to address national and global challenges. Global challenges such as climate change, food, human health, security, poverty, energy consumption, technology, and more recently a pandemic are complex and symbiotic. Their effective measures necessitate collaborations between policymakers and researchers from different disciplines across geopolitical boundaries and at multiple governmental levels. Science Diplomacy gives possibilities for international diplomacy and science policy to collaborate together to more directly address social and global challenges, such as successful diplomatic engagement, international scientific coordination, and policy coherence in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, most academic scientists lack policy process training, networking opportunities with science policymakers, and the capacity to use their expertise in the field to advance policy or diplomacy. These barriers limit scientists' research impact, inhibit science-policy relations, reduce science recommendations, and restrict university engagement in national and international contexts. In fact, the origins of science diplomacy have yet to be closely examined, and its current format does not give a clear understanding of how it concretely translates into science policy actions.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of science diplomacy and its evolution in history. It analyzes and discusses the ways in which politics, science, and diplomacy intertwine. It explores its significance in considering various case studies as a possible solution to address global challenges. Also, the book aims to give a critical review of science diplomacy by exposing its limitations in addressing global challenges and by reflecting on the specific questions relating to the adaptation of the science diplomacy concept to the context of the Global South.
