Modern diplomacy is in crisis. Climate change negotiations are stuck. The latest round of trade negotiations within WTO membership - the Doha Round - is close to collapse. Various financial crises have shown us that we need much better financial regulation. Food security, migration, disarmament, and Internet governance are some of the areas that require global arrangements. Most of these problems are highly complex.
Attempts at a solution often only transform these problems rather than solving them. The search for optimal solutions deals with the complex nature of problems and politically different interests. Very often, the challenges are of a managerial and organisational nature. They require more creative and out-of-the-box thinking.
Diplo addresses the challenges facing modern diplomacy through awareness building, training, and research activities. This calendar explores in both a serious and lighthearted way, some elements of interpersonal relationships and management that can make a difference.
