Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the consequences of change in individual and collective assistance by foreign ministries to diplomacy at large. It draws attention to substantial developments in consular affairs since the late 1990s that necessitate a qualification of assumptions about the relationship between consular affairs and diplomacy. Developments in contemporary consular affairs need to be understood in the framework of discussion about the evolving relationship between the state and its citizens, and of changes in the foreign ministry and in diplomacy. Distinguishing between the notion of diplomacy as an institution and diplomacy as a method shows how developments in consular affairs and diplomacy are moving in different directions. This facilitates understanding of the dual challenge in consular affairs that foreign ministries face, and how this in turn drives the emergence of two distinct expressions of consular diplomacy.
