Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter presents an overview of Regional Sub-State Diplomacy Today, which aims to offer readers an inspiring and fascinating snapshot of what is new and still unchanged in regional sub-state diplomacy. Regional sub-state diplomacy has come of age during the past decade. No longer limited to just a handful of federal states in Europe, sub-state entities across the world today engage in international relations and conduct a foreign policy that runs in parallel, complements, or is sometimes in conflict with their central governmental counterparts. Since the late 1990s, a process of refinement can also be detected. The spectrum of diplomatic instruments and the strategies that accompany them have become more diverse and complex.

Keywords: Europe; international relations; regional sub-state diplomacy
