Overview

'The New Economic Diplomacy' explains how states conduct their external economic relations as the 21st century begins
how they make decisions domestically; how they negotiate internationally; and how these processes interact. It documents the transformation of economic diplomacy in response to the end of the Cold War, the advance of globalisation and the terrorist attacks of September 2001 and illustrates the growing influence of non-state actors like private business and civil society.

The book integrates a full academic and theoretical analysis with the experience of senior practitioners in economic diplomacy. Based on the authors' work in the LSE's graduate programme on The Politics of the World Economy, it is suitable for students of International Political Economy, International Relations, Government, Politics and Economics but will also appeal to politicians, bureaucrats, business people, NGO activists, journalists and the informed public.
