The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy 2011
“Hard Vs. Soft Power in Local and Global Politics: Redefining Concepts of Power and Influence in an Age of Interdependence, Digital Revolution, and Social Media”
(Berlin, 11th-15th May 2011)
The change over the past two decades from an international system based on independent nation states to an interdependent world facing global challenges has been widely explored and analyzed. At the level of international relations the change is accompanied by a growing understanding of the importance of global public goods. Activity to tackle climate change, for example, can no longer be pursued by individual states acting alone. Similarly, issues that have traditionally been considered of domestic concern have been given an international dimension: national policies on immigration, healthcare, education, and economics must increasingly be coordinated with international partners.
The Symposium is open to applications from diplomatic and political representatives, civil society practitioners, private sector figures, journalists, young professionals, students and scholars, and other interested stakeholders in international relations from across the world.
The online application form can be found under:
Speakers during the Symposium will include leading figures and experts from international politics, academia, the diplomatic community, civil society and the private sector, from across the world.
