Why Studying State Foreign Services Remains a Research Priority

Abstract

It is quite understandable that diplomatic studies devote a huge amount of research to new trends in diplomacy such as public diplomacy, cyber-diplomacy, and digital diplomacy. Research has therefore become more limited when states’ foreign services and institutions are concerned. This contribution is a plea for not forgetting research perspectives on foreign ministries in the world. It insists on five good reasons to continue comparative work on what seems to be a ‘classic’ topic of diplomatic studies. The article is conceived as the introduction to a series of other contributions on the subject, all resulting from a round-table that took place at the ISA Congress 2017 in Baltimore.
