SUMMARY: Democracy is said to be the pillar to the voice of the average citizen but why is it that foreign policies do not reflect the general concerns and opinions of people at home? This webinar will explore this important distinction with an introduction to grassroot diplomacy.

Role of Diplomats And Politicians

SUMMARY: Diplomats and politicians are the people’s representatives, at home and abroad. Yet, very few know exactly what their roles are. Due to this, unrealistic expectations are placed upon them and efforts are wasted when approaching the wrong official. This webinar will examine both roles in detail.

Diplomatic Immunity

SUMMARY: The Vienna Conventions grants every diplomat with immunity which protects them from prosecution of the highest crime. Is this fair in today’s world and how far does it reach? This webinar will scrutinise diplomatic immunity and the effects this has on diplomatic actions and relationships.
