This book provides a comprehensive new introduction to the study of international diplomacy, covering both theory and practice. The text summarises and discusses the major trends in the field of diplomacy, developing an innovative analytical toolbox for understanding diplomacy not as a collection of practices or a set of historical traditions, but as a form of institutionalised communication through which authorised representatives produce, manage and distribute public goods. In sum, Understanding International Diplomacy provides an up-to-date, accessible and authoritative overview of how diplomacy works and ought to work in a globalising world.

Student Feature – Introduction to Diplomacy
Diplomacy , the established method of influencing the decisions and behaviour of foreign governments and peoples through dialogue , negotiation , and other measures short of war or violence. Modern diplomatic practices are a product of the post- Renaissance European state system. Historically, diplomacy meant the conduct of official usually bilateral relations between sovereign states. By the 20th century, however, the diplomatic practices pioneered in Europe had been adopted throughout the world, and diplomacy had expanded to cover summit meetings and other international conferences, parliamentary diplomacy, the international activities of supranational and subnational entities, unofficial diplomacy by nongovernmental elements, and the work of international civil servants. Later it applied to all solemn documents issued by chancelleries, especially those containing agreements between sovereigns.
Objective of the Course. This course investigates discourses, theories and practices associated with global diplomacy, across different levels and within a wide range of areas. It equips students with the basic vocabulary and methods that enable them to hone their diplomatic skills. Diplomacy is one of the oldest institutions of world politics. Its study is on the rise, but the contours of diplomacy have considerably expanded, which raises questions about its meaning and boundaries. This module examines diplomatic actors, processes, and policies, in different contexts. The rationale is that those who understand how diplomacy operates will be able to have a distinctive and thoughtful impact on the world.
