Behind the scenes of digital diplomacy | Rebecca Adler-Nissen |


Hashtags and 140 characters are becoming the norm in how we talk about anything. What we’re currently doing, what we think about that article by The Guardian, democratic vote outcomes, or what we ate just yesterday. As world leaders and politicians are equally engaged with social media, could this immediate and intense way of communicating ever affect foreign affairs? Rebecca Adler-Nissen is a Professor at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen. Her research focuses on international relations theory, diplomacy, sovereignty, security and European integration. She is former Head of Section in the Department of European Policy, at the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
