9780801477652: At Home with the Diplomats: Inside a European Foreign Ministry (Expertise: Cultures and Technologies of Knowledge)

The 2010 WikiLeaks release of 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables has made it eminently clear that there is a vast gulf between the public face of diplomacy and the opinions and actions that take place behind embassy doors. In At Home with the Diplomats, Iver B. Neumann offers unprecedented access to the inner workings of a foreign ministry. Neumann worked for several years at the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he had an up-close view of how diplomats conduct their business and how they perceive their own practices. In this book he shows us how diplomacy is conducted on a day-to-day basis.

Approaching contemporary diplomacy from an anthropological perspective, Neumann examines the various aspects of diplomatic work and practice, including immunity, permanent representation, diplomatic sociability, accreditation, and issues of gender equality. Neumann shows that the diplomat working abroad and the diplomat at home are engaged in two different modes of knowledge production. Diplomats in the field focus primarily on gathering and processing information. In contrast, the diplomat based in his or her home capital is caught up in the seemingly endless production of texts: reports, speeches, position papers, and the like. Neumann leaves the reader with a keen sense of the practices of diplomacy: relations with foreign ministries, mediating between other people's positions while integrating personal and professional into a cohesive whole, adherence to compulsory routines and agendas, and, above all, the generation of knowledge. Yet even as they come to master such quotidian tasks, diplomats are regularly called upon to do exceptional things, such as negotiating peace.

About the Author:

Iver B. Neumann is Professor and Director of Research at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs. He is the author of Uses of the Other: The "East" in European Identity Formation and coauthor most recently of Governing the Global Polity: Practice, Rationality, Mentality.

Review:

"With this book, Neumann, the recently appointed Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science, takes on the ambitious task of providing a 'historically informed ethnography of diplomacy, in which I ask what diplomats do and how they come to do it'. Based primarily on his experience at the Norwegian MFA, and deploying an anthropologist’s perspective, the result is a readable, slim volume that is informative, intriguing and thought-provoking.... At Home with the Diplomats is in many ways a ground-breaking book.... And it is fun at the same time. If that is not a sin, then this is a book worth reading." ― Jeremy Cresswell, The Hague Journal of Diplomacy (2014)



". . . Iver Neumann presents a bold new approach: the study of diplomacy as anthropology. . . . Neumann is well suited to parsing the grammar of this shared culture as a participant-observer of the diplomatic tribe. . . . By retrieving what this world looks and feels like, Neumann's work poses a series of questions that point the way to an exciting agenda for further research."―Nigel Gould-Davis, International Affairs (April 2014)



"What is it actually like to be a diplomat, and what do diplomats actually do when they practice diplomacy? Reflecting on these questions, Iver B. Neumann combines sociological theory and anthropological insight, leavened by personal experience and judgment, to produce an extraordinary and pathbreaking ethnography of diplomacy. In so doing, however, he also demonstrates just how important it is that the study of international relations extends beyond its present narrow theoretical and methodological confines if it is to produce knowledge which is both valuable and interesting to people living in an era of transformation and growing uncertainty."―Paul Sharp, University of Minnesota Duluth, author of Diplomatic Theory of International Relations



"Based on a close ethnographic and historical analysis of Norway's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Iver B. Neumann’s book provides a detailed, fascinating insider account of the behavior of Norwegian diplomats. Neumann offers critical anthropological insight into the wider world of international diplomacy from its origins to the present day, including the cultural norms and values that define what it means to be a diplomat in our increasingly globalized world. A valuable contribution to the anthropology of elites and the study of modern government, this book should be essential reading for anyone interested in understanding modern bureaucracy and contemporary statecraft."―Cris Shore, The University of Auckland
