dc.description.abstract In international relations, diplomacy operates within the parameters set by knowledge. The technology which knowledge brings shapes the rules of competition, and demarcates those with power from those without. A state's power within the international system of states, is in large part dictated by its access to knowledge. A geographically small state such as Japan can wield power within the system far beyond its size, due to its access to knowledge creation. A state which lacks direct access to knowledge, has little influence over the terms of a diplomatic bargain which it strikes with a knowledge-rich state. International diplomacy and inter-state relations revolve around the creation and control of knowledge. en
