Diplomacy is a complex field of interconnectedness and requires a holistic view of the delicate interplay between actors and non-state actors. Diplomatic Academies, institutes and training institutions are tasked with the challenge of equipping diplomats with the necessary tools to understand this interplay, analyze it, and predict future outcomes. The Covid-19 pandemic has had massive ramifications on the traditional practices of diplomacy, with the sudden halt of travel, meetings, and most human interactions. Diplomatic training has therefore taken the necessary measures to guarantee the health and safety of all its students and staff by postponing and altering the whole training calendar for the coming months.
One of the key legacies of crises is the positive outcomes that are born as a result, which often occur through cooperation. We therefore, would like to take the initiative and invite you to share your thoughts and expertise on tangible ways of cooperating in the field of diplomatic training.
We at the Mohamed bin Mubarak Academy for Diplomatic Studies in the Kingdom of Bahrain would like to take this opportunity to host a video-call session with the key and leading figures from across the globe, to discuss the effects of the pandemic on diplomatic training, the adaptive strategies taken and share ideas on plans for moving forward.
