The workshop “Understanding Diplomacy”, held in Geneva on 18 September,
gave all who attended the opportunity to look at the “nuts and bolts” of
modern diplomacy. Using interactive sessions and practical exercises, the
focus was on diplomatic procedures, professional cultures and the way
diplomacy operates. Diplomats and journalists, together on the same stage
of international affairs but with different roles, shape many modern
developments. The intersection of these two professions inevitably brings
tensions, misunderstandings and, sometimes, conflicts. The workshop aimed
to increase understanding among journalists of the work of diplomats and
the challenges they face.
