Corona Diplomacy: Will changes affect future practice?

30 June 2020


Event description

[Update] The recording of this webinar is now available.

Participants of the webinar ‘Corona Diplomacy: Will changes affect future practice?’, organised by International Debat (ID), will discuss how diplomacy is affected by COVID-19 and how current changes in diplomatic efforts will affect future practice. 

The online event is scheduled for Tuesday, 30th June, at 20:00 CEST. 

COVID-19 has made it difficult for diplomats to meet face-to-face in a time when international co-ordination and co-operation is needed more than ever.

Technology creates alternatives to onsite meetings, but what happens when national diplomats can no longer meet face-to-face? What happens to trust, co-operation, and information exchange? Will governments and diplomats turn to public and digital diplomacy now that travelling is less likely and that people are tied to their screens? And more importantly, are new diplomatic trends temporary, or will they change diplomatic practice permanently?

Panelists include Prof. Rebecca Adler-Nissen (Principal Investigator, Project DIPLOFACE, University of Copenhagen), Ms Natalia Burlinova (Founder and President, Public Initiative Creative Diplomacy (PICREADI)), and Dr Katharina Höne (DiploFoundation).
