The Future of Diplomacy and Statecraft

Tuesday, May 7, 2024
02:30 PM - 03:30 PM PDT

In the art of diplomacy, we see both continuity and change—especially in the 21st century with the impact of globalization, technology, social media, and shifting geopolitical dynamics. More than ever, diplomatic decision-making is at a crossroads where traditional practices must adapt to the rapidly evolving global landscape. The panel will explore how these changes are shaping the field of diplomacy, the challenges and opportunities they present, and the implications for international relations and global governance.
