Chapter Summary

This chapter aims to explore some of the implications, ramifications and complexities of this new form of consular activity. A key lesson of recent events is that foreign ministries are increasingly under pressure to anticipate specific risks that their nationals abroad might face, and to provide real-time warnings as potential threats materialize. The chapter offers a brief overview of what might be called 'classic' consular responsibilities. It examines the phenomenon of travel warnings, and the context of popular expectations within which they are issued. The chapter outlines the types of political controversy that can surround travel warnings, and notes some of the complexities that surround the management of 'risk'. It explores some of the unintended consequences that can flow from travel warnings, and looks at alternatives.
