Summary/Abstract: The international activity of local governments has become part of a larger process that includes the growing significance of non-governmental bodies in international relations, and the expanding role of local administration in the EU. Although cooperation between local governments is still focused on contacts between communities and sharing experience between particular local entities, more and more of their projects assume a broader international dimension. Such “local government diplomacy” has already become part of public diplomacy and can be used as a tool of foreign policy.
