Conference on Diplomacy of Small States

DiploFoundation, in partnership with the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, and the Maltese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is organising an International Conference on the Diplomacy of Small States on 8-9 February 2007 in the Coastline Hotel in Malta.

The Malta Conference is the initiation of a more encompassing project that will involve seminars in Geneva and Brussels as well as research projects and courses for diplomats from small states. The Conference and the continuing project may be of interest to policy-makers and diplomats from small states, as well as to academics working on the topic and students of international relations and diplomacy. For more information, please visit the Conference website or, to register, please contact us at conference@diplomacy.edu.

Those interested in contributing to other aspects of research and analysis of small state diplomacy – such as SWOT analyses on Diplomatic Training in Small States, Public Diplomacy, or Regional Cooperation – should contact the Project Coordinator, Ljupco Gjorgjinski.

Call for Applications – Spring Online Courses

LAST CALL – we are still accepting applications for our upcoming online course in Internet Governance (Dr Jovan Kurbalija, Dr Andrei Mikheyev, Mr Seiiti Arata) starting in mid-February 2007.

We are also accepting applications for the upcoming short online courses starting in April 2007: 

Courses allow working diplomats and others involved in international relations to continue their education by learning about new topics in the field of diplomacy, or to expand and refresh their knowledge of more traditional topics. Courses require 10 weeks of part-time study, typically 6 to 8 hours per week. Successful participants receive a postgraduate level certificate from DiploFoundation.

The application deadline for courses beginning in April 2007 is March 26, 2007. For further information, click on the titles of the courses above, or visit the Diplo website.

Remote Access Keeps You in Touch

Remote access to your at-home computer will make it even easier to complete on-line studies. A recent BBC Click article, "Remote Access Keeps You in Touch," looks at how remote access will soon transform our lives, ensuring we are never away from any data. A host of Internet services will soon allow us to go online and connect to a computer far away.
