Diplomacy of small states | Online course

01 July 2007

Event description

In July 2007, Diplo introduced a new course, ‘Diplomacy of Small States‘, taught by Malta’s Permanent Representative to the UN in New York, Ambassador Victor Camilleri. The course examined the manner in which small states conducted diplomacy in pursuit of foreign policy objectives, and managed participation in the global community of nations. The subject took two aspects as starting premises – that diplomacy as practiced by small states is a subset of the basic themes and methods of diplomacy in general; and that small states, however defined, are necessary and active partners in the global community of nations.
