About This Book

The book focuses on the novel and unexplored research area of intersection between science, technology, and innovation; and international affairs. The main objective of this book is to offer an original theoretical, analytical, and methodological framework that provides a wide comprehensive map of the current reality of science, tech, and innovation in the world system at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The book is based on 10 years of research work in the strategic intersection between science, technology, and innovation and international relations, and offers new explanations about three main issues: (1) the role of science, tech and innovation in the current international system, (2) the new configuration of international scientific relations, and (3) the impact and consequences of science, technology, and innovation in the world order of the twenty-first century.

Using an original methodology, the book adopts a systemic approach that uses systems models to offer a very detailed, holistic, and comprehensive analysis. It targets the social and academic interest in topics related to science, technology, and innovation and international affairs. The book addresses the lack of theoretical and methodological approaches that examine this rising phenomenon and provides clear findings and ideas about the main megatrends and impact of science, technology, and innovation in the international system for the next 20 years.

Reviews

“In the midst of a pandemic, the choice of the name ‘Sputnik V’ for the Russian vaccine is not fortuitous. The same applies to the glamorous sequel to the Apollo space flights, which followed the Moon landing, or the grandiose names coined by either Chinese or European scientific authorities to promote their respective latest advancements. Boosting their prestige was among the goals intended. But so-called Science Diplomacy goes beyond those branding efforts, including the often complex relations between states, non-state actors, and scientific personnel. Dr. del Canto Viterale’s groundbreaking volume provides a comprehensive understanding of how that realm of international relations has evolved in the last decades.” — Francisco Rodriguez-Jimenez, Professor at University of Extremadura, Spain, and member of the Executive committee of the THINK TANK in Global Studies, at University of Salamanca, Spain

“This is an exciting book. The principal accomplishment is the introduction of International Scientific Relations as an interdisciplinary field. The study answers a host of questions about the role of science and technology in shaping international relations and will be of interest to both scholars and the policy community. — Patrick James, Dornsife Dean’s Professor of International Relations, University of Southern California, US
