Our December WebDebate focuses on data management, data diplomacy, and big data.
Data, information, and knowledge are at the core of diplomacy. We now have, however, entered a phase which stresses data management more than ever. Big data has become a buzzword and we need to begin to think about the impact this has on diplomacy. Questions of providing adequate training on data diplomacy also need to be raised. Our speakers will discuss how to provide training for diplomats in data/information/knowledge management and share practical examples in the area of training and capacity building.
Join us for our next WebDebate on Tuesday, 6th December at 12:00 UTC (13.00 CET). Registrations for this event are now closed.
The WebDebates on the future of diplomacy are livestreamed on the first Tuesday of every month. They are organised by DiploFoundation within the framework of the International Forum on Diplomatic Training (IFDT). Learn more about our series of WebDebates.
If you form part of a dynamic circle of practitioners in your community, we encourage you to establish a diplomatic hub to follow the WebDebates and to facilitate discussions. For more information, contact Ms Mina Mudric, DiploFoundation.
