The Internet Guide for Diplomats is the first guide specifically conceived and realised to assist diplomats and others involved in international affairs to use the Internet in their work. The book includes both basic technical information about the Internet and specific issues related to the use of the Internet in diplomacy. Examples and illustrations address many common questions including web-management for diplomatic services, knowledge management and distance learning.
20 years ago, the Internet Guide for Diplomats was the first publication meant to assist diplomats in using the Internet in their daily work, but it also included broader reflections on diplomacy and the Internet. The 20th anniversary is a good occasion to step back and see what has changed and what remains the same in diplomacy.
