E-diplomacy workshop held in Addis Ababa

Event description

The recent E-diplomacy Workshop organised by DiploFoundation on 6 April 2011 was attended by African diplomats accredited to the UN in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

During the workshop, participants learned about the impact of the Internet on diplomacy and international relations. The focus was on ways in which the Internet can assist diplomats representing small and developing countries to perform their jobs more effectively. Participants also learned more about the Internet as a new topic on diplomatic agendas, and on its impact on African countries.

The workshop was organised in partnership with the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). It was organised under Diplo’s Capacity Development Programme in ICT Policy and IG for ACP countries, supported by the EU @CP-ICT Programme.
