Besides, a discourse analysis is conducted, the main tasks of education diplomacy are formulated and defined. The methodological foundations of education diplomacy functioning are considered basing on generalizations of the experience and observations covering this issue, which indicate the multi-vector nature and relevance of the proposed research.

The expert opinions of scientists studying the issue of education diplomacy from the point of view of current development, advantages and challenges are given in the article.  An integral part of education is scientific diplomacy, which has been gaining special relevance, since the publication and content of educational and scientific literature determine not only education in general, but also the educational and informational context of the country, in particular.
