Ministries of foreign a fairs are prominent institutions at the heart of state diplomacy. Although they have lost their monopoly on the making of national foreign policies, they still are the operators of key practices associated with diplomacy: communication, representation and negotiation. Often studied in a monographic way, ministries of foreign a fairs are undergoing an adaptation of their practices that require a global approach. This book lls a gap in the literature by approaching ministries of foreign a fairs in a comparative and comprehensive way. The best international specialists in the eld provide methodological and theoretical insights into how best to study institutions that remain crucial for the world diplomacy.
