SUMMER SCHOOL OF 2024
ON CULTURAL DIPLOMACY

Located in The Hague, Netherlands

Cultural diplomacy has "the potential to touch individuals in ways traditional diplomacy might not, creating lasting, positive impressions". Communities are build and developed based on our cultural heritage. Throughout history it has shown that this heritage influences the development of our institutions, the state and even our personal attitudes towards one another. It is the identity that comes out through our personal and professional contact with others. Identity politics today shape international and national symbols, as well as relations. In an ever interconnected world where we need to deal with problems and challenges that transcend borders we need to work together. States and communities increasingly use their cultural history in achieving their political objectives.

Culture has become a crucial tool in international relations. The diversity can become a bases for finding one another, strengthening relations and ties between states and communities. While in other cases it used to amplify clashes and differences, creating a them and us. Sharing arts, education, culture in every way, we can bridge gaps and forge closer international relationships. Traditional diplomacy more and more is making space for new and innovative forms of relationship forging, culture has the potential to leave a lasting, good effect on people. But what is it? How can we use it? And what kind of success stories are know? And what do we need to do to integrate cultural in negotiation to achieve favourable out comes?

Higly recommend this course, well organised and great learning content. Gives realistic and good experience what diplomacy is and how it is conducted. Change to speak and learn from high level professionals on the field.

My experience at the summer school of The Young Diplomat was incredible. It was a week full of cooperation, negotiation, and learning. We met with diplomats, experienced professors, officials, and citizens involved in the fields of diplomacy, justice, and human rights. For me, it was a great opportunity for networking and learning for my academic and professional career. I would absolutely recommend this summer school for future students.

We as participants of the Young Diplomat Summer school experienced a very intense and informative program! We visited key political institutions in the Hague, had many interesting lectures from real diplomats, scientists and professionals. Experienced plenty unforgettable moments, built a huge international network, gained real negotiation skills and had a lot of fun. Highly recommend summer school!
