ABSTRACT

Science and Innovation Diplomacy (S&ID) has emerged in recent years as a relevant
scholarly movement and interdisciplinary research agenda internationally. This field is
promoting a significant impact on the understanding of the cultural and political dynamics
of Science, Technology and Innovation (ST&I), implementing initiatives fromlocal to global
level. Notwithstanding, S&ID is growing asymmetrically around the world, setting up over
a particular configuration in the so-called Global South (GS) societies. In Latin America
(LA), although S&ID is a recent, unequal and intra-nationally fragmented process, there
are important achievements that have been able to create a favorable mix of approaches,
agendas, and practices in this field. Addressing the scope of the special issue “Science
Diplomacy and Sustainable Development: Perspectives from Latin America,” this article
aims to present a comprehensive analytical typology to the study of the emerging
experiences of S&ID in LA, catching the diversity of this research agenda. This is a
qualitative merged method-based study, sustained by a literature review, documentary
research, online data analysis, and typology building. We understand S&ID in LA as a
tentative re-organization of different states and subnational actors around the study and
institutionalization of the governance of contemporary transformations on the systems
of ST&I.
