The latest edition of the Exopolitics Journal has just been released, and focuses on what diplomatic relations with extraterrestrial life might look like. With a steady increase in the number of exoplanets that are being confirmed, scientists have concluded it is inevitable that extraterrestrial life will one day be discovered. In the not distant future, it can be predicted that "Galactic Diplomacy" will be as important to the quality of our lives, as is international diplomacy today.
Here is what Manuel Lamiroy, the Co-editor of this special edition of the Exopolitics Journal had to say in his introduction:
This second volume of the fourth edition of the Exopolitics Journal continues with the theme of “Extraterrestrial Contact.” This time, the focus is on “Galactic Diplomacy.” While “Official Contact” still is the subject of science fiction, Extraterrestrial Contact already is happening, has been happening for a long time, and is ongoing, on a large scale. Indeed, to date, thousands of individuals have had contact experiences, and the indications are that this phenomenon will increase. As such, there is a growing need for galactic diplomacy; not only for official – or “track I” – diplomacy, but also for “Track II” or “Citizen Diplomacy with Extraterrestrials.”
This special edition of the Exopolitics Journal contains seven articles along with an introduction. It is available online for free.
