Advanced Diplomatic Webinars (January - December 2013)

The main aim of this series of advanced diplomatic webinars dealing with the evolution of diplomacy and technology is to anchor our discussion on the impact of the Internet on diplomacy in diplomacy's long history dating back to the dawn of humanity (see: introduction text).

Each month webinars will cover one phase in the evolution of diplomacy and technology as illustrated in Diplo's 2013 calendar.

Participation in the webinars involves:

  • Consulting a background document for the monthly webinar (5-10 pages)
  • Attending the monthly webinar scheduled for the fourth Friday of each month between 14.00 and 15.00 CET
  • Answering the post-webinar questionnaire

The evolution of diplomacy has involved an interplay of continuity and change: continuity in the core diplomatic functions, i.e. negotiations and representation; change in the ways in which diplomacy is performed, i.e. the use of telegraph, telephone, and the Internet.

Successful participants will receive certificate of particpation. The registration fee for each monthly webinar is €30. Diplo will provide a limited number of free places for alumni, partner institutions, and participants from developing countries.

We are looking forward to your participation in this exciting discussion. Please let us know if you will need additional information.
