The Internet has had a significant impact on policy and politics. Today,
especially after US President Obama’s e-driven campaign success, it is
difficult to find any policy process without e-support and impact through
social networking tools like blogs, Twitter, Facebook and others.

International relations and diplomacy are following this trend. An
increasing number of diplomatic services use Web 2.0 tools. Some have
established virtual embassies. Significantly, the Internet has opened up
two-way channels of communication, providing a tool for individuals and
organisations worldwide to influence global policy. Through the Internet,
the voice of individuals, marginalised groups, and countries can bypass the
maze of political representation and be heard globally. These processes and
developments, which we can refer to collectively as ‘e-diplomacy’,
substantially influence and will certainly continue to influence the way
international relations are conducted.

The International Conference on E-diplomacy created an opportunity for
participants to reflect on the developments of e-diplomacy and to discuss
practical applications.
