Watch the recording from our latest webinar

Recognising the need for up-to-the-minute information offset by the limited time we have available, DiploFoundation delivers regular webinars on various diplomacy and Internet governance topics. Webinars typically feature an interactive video presentation followed by a Q&A session. Participants from all over the world, with diverse backgrounds, meet to discuss topical issues and share their knowledge and experience. Facilitated by Diplo's subject matter experts, these conversations provide a forum for thought-provoking discussions that illustrate key developments and reflect on lessons learned.

WebDebates: Reflecting on the future of diplomacy

The era of connectivity brings about many challenges for diplomacy. How relevant is the diplomatic service? What changes can we expect to see in diplomatic training? A new series of webinars, taking place every first Tuesday of the month, will gather diplomats, professionals involved in diplomacy, and researchers from all over the world, to discuss key topics related to the future of diplomacy. Read more about WebDebates.

Internet governance webinars

The monthly Geneva Internet Platform briefings provide a 'zoomed-out' update of the major global digital policies and Internet governance developments. The briefings are held every last Tuesday of the month, and are organised by the Geneva Internet Platform – operated by DiploFoundation – as part of the GIP Digital Watch initiative. Read more about the monthly briefings.

From our archive: Advanced diplomatic webinars

In a series of advanced diplomatic webinars developed with the Diplomatic Institute of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Diplo addressed the challenges of modern diplomacy from two perspectives: evolution of diplomacy and technology - digging into history in order to see what we can use in addressing modern diplomatic problems; social media and diplomacy - focusing on the use of modern social media tools in diplomacy (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and wiki).

Diplo Podcast – Episode 2

Is diplomacy art or science?

If it is art, it cannot be theorized and in the same time thousands of schools of international relations teach international relations theory, which very often becomes a purpose in itself.
