The State of International Affairs: A Compendium of Deliberations – Diplomacy Dialogue 2020-21 (E-Book)
We live in a highly connected world, and the events and happenings in one country directly and/or indirectly impact other countries. From bilateral relations to multilateral arrangements, from diplomacy to sanctions and from globalization to protectionism, the role of small and developing states, reforms of global governance structures, and processes, non-state actors and international policy
To advance this understanding, the IMPRI Center for International Relations and Strategic Studies (CIRSS) initiated a discussion series – The State of International Affairs – #DiplomacyDialogue. Through the reach of the digital, it seeks to contribute to the world of tomorrow through ideas and ideation. Since 2020, DiplomacyDialogue has brought over one hundred experts comprising leaders across politics, government, business, media, civil society and academia. Over the past two years, these dialogues have reached to over three thousand individuals who registered to participate in these consequential deliberations.
As countries make headway into becoming a responsible power in the new world order, the The State of International Affairs – #DiplomacyDialogue seeks to present the insights and analysis to scholars of international relations and those interested in the theories, dynamism, developments, trends in diplomacy, and foreign affairs.
This book is a compendium of the deliberations of #DiplomacyDialogue during 2020-21, which provides a greater understanding of the complexities of unfolding events, trends, and geopolitics. Conducted via Zoom webinars and streamed live on Facebook, and later uploaded as high quality videos over YouTube and as #WebPolicyTalk: Live at IMPRI podcast, on Spotify and Google Podcasts, these events have elicited huge viewership and social media participation. These offer insights and learnings to bolster transformative actions and policy recommendations, and foster a resilient and more inclusive global society.
This compendium aims to serve as a good resource to policymakers, diplomats, corporate and civil society leaders as well as researchers and students either working on or interested in international relations.
