Since the end of the Cold War, the previously cooperative nature of small state diplomacy has been eroded by heated competition in an increasingly globalized world. Differences between small states have been exacerbated. While increasing competition is resulting in the successful growth of some small states who exercise effective multilateralism and creative, and perhaps somewhat unconventional, economic policy, others seem to be left behind. Through analysing the various practices exercised by small states in their diplomatic negotiations, Diplomacies of Small States: Between Vulnerability and Resilience crafts compelling arguments, detailing both successful and not-so-successful attempts at punching above one's weight. Bringing together experts in the field of small state international political economy, this book shows that many options exist for small states in the twenty-first century, proving they can be resilient in the face of their vulnerabilities.
