Abstract

The term “salience” refers to the “relative importance or significance ascribed to a given issue.” It has gained considerable attention in the study of public opinion about international affairs but much less so in the study — and above all, formation — of relations among states. Case studies illustrate the benefit of greater use of the concept.
