Science Diplomacy

Countries these days have started exploring a special foreign policy tool called Science Diplomacy. There are few countries which already have integrated formal Science Diplomacy strategies into their foreign policy; example, France, EU, US. Should India, as a country which aims to become a scientific super power, need to have its own science diplomacy strategy?  This work (project), as an initial step, attempts to question the concept of Science Diplomacy in Indian perspective; trying to understand the existing role of S&T in India’s foreign policy; and frame a more suitable definition in Indian context.
