It follows that any social institution, and diplomacy is one, should be studied in terms of that dimension. This book takes up the cudgels. Sites2 In Latin, both locus (cf. Gr. topos) and situs denote place, but the meaning of situs is tilted towards a place where something happens. When archaeologists talk about an object being in situ, they mean that it sits where it was found and, presumably, once used.
Framing narratives exist as a general matrix for how the parties make sense of the world and as such tend not to be subject to ongoing self-reflection and revision. If myths constitute the basic layer of diplomacy and the second layer may be thought of as narrative sociabilities, then the third, top layer of discourse are practices, which give shape to diplomatic events. Practices include: the accreditation of foreign diplomats, treaty making, forms of greeting, dress codes and many more. In contemporary diplomacy, formalisation is inextricably linked to law-making.
