In seeking to test the conventional wisdom that foreign ministries are 'in decline', the contributors to this book examine the role and status of foreign ministries in twelve countries together with their place within the European Union. Valuable information on the response of the foreign policy machinery to change at both the domestic and international levels is provided as are important insights into the linkages between foreign policy and the mechanisms through which it is conducted. This book will be essential reading for those concerned with foreign policy-making in the post-Cold War era as well as those interested in the evolving machinery of government in its broader context.
