Diplo’s main activities
Diplo works in a number of areas and runs many programmes and activities. These include:
Capacity development programmes in areas such as Internet governance, e-diplomacy, and public diplomacy. Our approach includes online training, policy research, policy immersion, and the development of communities of practice.
Events. To deal with pressing issues in global governance, our events bring together people from different areas, including diplomats, business professionals, and members of civil society. We work to make our events more accessible through online participation.
Courses. Diplo offers a Master’s programme in Contemporary Diplomacy in collaboration with the University of Malta, and many postgraduate-level academic courses and training workshops on a variety of diplomacy-related topics for diplomats, civil servants, staff of international organisations and NGOs, students of international relations, etc. Courses are delivered online, face-to-face, and in a blended format.
Research and publications on topics such as e-diplomacy, online learning, e-participation, Internet governance, and digital policy. We build on traditional policy research methods through Internet-based techniques, including crowd-sourcing, trend analysis, and collaborative research. Many of our publications are available online as well as in print, and some have been translated into several languages.
Diplo also operates the Geneva Internet Platform and the GIP Digital Watch observatory.
