[NEW blog post] More e-tools: info aggregators, blogging, and microblogging, 16 March 2011
The Internet has undoubtedly played a central role in the latest events in the Arab region. The events, dubbed the ‘Twitter revolutions’, have been extensively chronicled on social media networks. Together with the CableGate scandal, these events have shaken the foundation of the global diplomatic system, and are demonstrating the dynamic power of online communication in modern politics.
The workshop explores the Internet-driven changes in the global environment for today’s diplomacy, new topics on diplomatic agendas (Internet governance, cyber-politics, cyber war), and the current and future use of e-tools in diplomatic activities. The workshop is part of the Modern Diplomacy for Small States workshop, which is being held on 7-16 March.
Are you a diplomat from a small state? Do you have a special interest in Diplomacy of Small States?
