International Conference on Cultural Diplomacy & the UN

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

(New York, February 21st – 24th, 2012)[/center][/center]

Dear Sir/ Madam,

The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy is currently accepting applications
for our forth coming, which will take place in
New York,
February 21st – 24th, 2012.
The event will bring
together governmental 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 “Could Cultural Diplomacy represent a
useful tool for fostering international cooperation within an institutional
framework and within the wider global government?”
