Time for celebration! After months of hard and creative work, thirteen students graduated with the Master in Contemporary Diplomacy in late November this year. This programme is run by Diplo in partnership with the University of Malta.
As you can see from the list below, most of the dissertations focus on Internet governance, digital diplomacy, public diplomacy, international relations, and e-governance. In the coming weeks, our graduates will present the main findings of their research in a series of blogs and interviews.
After the graduation ceremony in Valletta, Malta: Kevon Swift (Trinidad and Tobago), Nada Kanj (Lebanon/Ireland), Desiree Zeljka Milosevic Evans (Serbia/UK) and Lutine De Boer (The Netherlands)
