In recent years, we have increased the number of partnerships on various projects.  In 2009, we won a highly competitive tender with the European Union to provide capacity development in Internet governance and policy to Asia-Caribbean-Pacific (ACP) countries (find out more). We are increasingly approached by emerging and developing countries to provide services financed by these countries (e.g. Mexico, South Africa, Bahrain, and India).

We are always interested to hear suggestions for new partnerships, especially in the fields of Internet governance, climate change, migration, and diplomacy training.  Please contact us.

Our partnerships include:

  • [New] In cooperation with the Center for Education Diplomacy, Diplo is exploring the emerging concept of education diplomacy through awareness-raising events and the development of a new online course.
  • [New] Diplo is a partner member of the MAPPING project, aimed at creating an all-round and “joined-up” understanding of the many and varied economic, social, legal and ethical aspects of the recent developments on the Internet.
  • Diplo hosts and operates the Geneva Internet Platform, an initiative of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and the Federal Office of Communications, which fulfils the mission of an observatory, a capacity building centre (online and in situ), and a centre for discussion.
  • In cooperation with GSMA Capacity Building, we have developed and run an online capacity development course on child online protection, aimed at staff of telecommunications regulatory authorities worldwide.
