For a special Issue of the Polar Record journal, Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge University Press, papers on the topic of Arctic Science Diplomacy in the Rapidly Changing World: From Regional to Global Scales are welcomed. We invite research papers from scientists and experts in this field. For more information please visit the journal website.
Science diplomacy plays an integral role in international science facilitation and communication being an element of soft power that enables the nations to build comprehensive longer-term and stable science dialogue at different levels from the global arena to national, regional, and even institutional actors. While being such a powerful and overarching instrument, science diplomacy constantly experiences paradigm shifts driven by the multiple and multidimensional internal and external changes. With this Special Issue, we aim to discuss Arctic science diplomacy case studies which both exercise examples from the regional to global and global to regional co-influence and explore innovative tools and approaches to delivering science diplomacy in the rapidly changing global context.
