Most small and developing states do not participate equally in global policy processes. By starting with the empowerment of individuals, Diplo’s capacity development support has strengthened NGOs, government institutions, and global policy processes themselves.
We believe that good capacity development support
Therefore, our long-term programmes combine:
Diplo’s capacity development has the following specific features:
Capacity Development Programme in ICT Policy and IG for ACP countries
Our two-year Capacity Development Programme (2009-2011) in ICT Policy and IG for African, Caribbean and Pacific countries included several projects, courses, activities, and publications. Over 500 participants from 60 ACP countries benefited directly from the training. Many more benefited from the programme by following the activities online, reading the publications, and engaging with the community in one way or another. Find out more on our archive site.
Public diplomacy for Roma
As a result of our pioneering work in 2005/2006, there are now more Roma diplomats who represent Roma communities in policy debates at both national and EU level. Find out more on our archive site.
Human rights and health diplomacy in Serbia & Montenegro
Over 50 judges, government officials, lawyers, medical doctors, civil society activists and academics participated in our tailored programmes on UN Human Rights treaties and global health initiatives (2005/2006).
Diplo is constantly forging new partnerships with organisations worldwide to address pressing issues in diplomacy and international relations. Some of these projects will become the capacity development programmes of the future.
