Title
French regions as diplomatic actors : the case of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur
Author
Abstract
This article argues that the advent of sub-national entities on the international arena has changed our thinking about the international environment and diplomacy. However, most literature on paradiplomacy focuses on a number of paradigmatic cases, thereby overlooking the diplomatic practices of lesser-known sub-national actors. This article offers a contribution to the paradiplomacy literature by analysing the diplomacy of the French region of Provence-Alpes-Côte dAzur. By focusing on the international agency of the region and by framing sub-national diplomacy as a means of managing relations between the Self and the Other, this article aims at gaining more insight into the essence of paradiplomacy.
