    The International Conference on Cultural Diplomacy & the UN

    “Cultural Diplomacy
    and Soft Power in an Interdependent World: The Opportunities of Global

    (New York, February 21st – 24th, 2012)


    The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is currently
    accepting applications for our forth coming event, which will take place in New York City from February 21st – 24th, 2012. The event will bring together government and diplomatic
    officials, civil society practitioners, private sector representatives,
    journalists, young professionals, students and scholars, and other interested
    stakeholders from across the world for a program of lectures, workshops, panel
    and group discussions and social and cultural activities featuring leading
    figures from the fields of politics, the arts, academia, media, and business.

    The “Conference on The United Nations and Cultural
    Diplomacy” is one of a three–part series of International Conferences held by
    the ICD on the issue of ‘International Institutions and Global Governance: The
    Role of Cultural Diplomacy’. The aim of the conference this year is to reflect
    on the role of institutions such as the United Nations within the international
    system, on global governance as a whole in terms of key international issues
    and on how Cultural Diplomacy takes place. The program will consist of
    lectures, seminars, debates and panel discussions that will feature leading figures
    from international politics & diplomacy, academia, civil society, and the
    private sector.

    In an age of
    international instability and discontent, the United Nations marked a transition
    towards a more ‘soft’ power-based approach to international relations. With its
    specific aim to foster peace and cooperation agreements, the United Nations was
    the first institution to focus on relations between states and international
    understanding. Cultural Diplomacy is becoming increasingly important within
    international relations and The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy reflects the
    desire to expand on this work.

    This conference will focus on and analyze the probability of Cultural Diplomacy
    representing a useful tool for fostering international cooperation within an
    institutional framework and within the wider global government.
