Diplo’s panel on science and tech diplomacy at Antalya Diplomatic Forum

During the 3d Antalya Diplomacy Forum (1-3 March 2024), Diplo organised the session titled ‘The Role of Science and Tech Diplomacy in a Globalized World’ by providing real-time reporting on the proceedings, ensuring that audiences worldwide stay informed about the discussions shaping the future of diplomacy in an era marked by significant global challenges. 

The panel addressed three sets of challenges in tech and digital diplomacy:

  • confusion about a proper name and description of cyber/digital/tech/online diplomacy;
  • the challenge of the cross-cutting nature of digital diplomacy – particularly, coordination of tech, security, social and other ministries that contribute to digital negotiations abroad;
  • lack of trained diplomats who can deal with tech issues.
