[Webinar] What can we learn from Ancient Greek diplomacy?

25 March 2014 -


Event description

After dealing with the early days of diplomacy and diplomacy of the Ancient World, we move now to diplomacy in Ancient Greece. 

To the Ancient Greeks we owe the term ‘diplomacy’ (folded in two). We will start our discussion through the role of the orator and the first examples of the principle of extra-territoriality.

Ancient Greek diplomacy was probably the most open form of diplomacy in history. It was delivered in plenary sessions. Ancient Greece also made early innovations in communication by developing some type of proto-telegraph. Lastly, they made huge advancements in developing crypto-protected communication.

Join us for a discussion on these and other issues at our live webinar 'What can we learn from Ancient Greek diplomacy?' with Dr. Jovan Kurbalija on Tuesday, March 25 at 14:00 GMT (15:00 CET).
