So too at times have the more traditional state-based diplomats, of course. In addition, however, Introduction: Understanding Diplomatic Practice the best among the latter have had some sense of ownership of, responsibility for, and even affection towards the system or society which facilitates and makes possible their work. This can be seen to work at the level of what Adam Watson (1982) calls la raison de systéme and underpins a diplomatic theory of international relations that can valorize political collaboration and coexistence whilst accepting separation and difference (Sharp, 2009).

Moreover, it is often missed that non-official or ‘unauthorized’ use of diplomatic discourse and terminology may hide wider or unresolved issues, be it claims to recognition or territorial sovereignty; taking exception to someone else’s governmental jurisdiction; aspirations to fully represent or rightly speak for someone or something; or power to negotiate or reopen negotiation or opt out of an agreement, and so on. In short, quotidian diplomatic terminology may be just 5 language gaming or trope, just as it may be expressive and symptomatic of a major political claim or power context or representation anxiety.
