Diplo and the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies held a Farewell
Symposium for Professor Dietrich Kappeler, retiring from his 50-year career
as a practitioner and teacher of diplomacy, on 12 February, 2009, in Malta.
Professor Kappeler worked with Diplo’s director, Dr Jovan Kurbalija, to
conceptualise and develop Diplo since its early days. Prior to his work
with Diplo, Professor Kappeler was a Swiss diplomat and the founding
director of three diplomatic training institutions (Kenya, Cameroon and
Malta). Discussion at the symposium addressed the theme “Persuasion – The
Essence of Diplomacy.” As well, we are offering a farewell discussion
online. Contributions will appear online, while selected contributions may
be published in 2009.
