The new digital world led to a new world of diplomacy. Digitization has changed the way of using diplomacy as well as the internal structure of Ministries of Foreign Affairs.

As the report ‘Diplomacy in the Digital Age’ develops, “digitalization generates diplomatic changes at two levels: diplomatic processes, geared towards the functions of diplomacy, and diplomatic structures, paying special attention to institutions of diplomacy such as foreign ministries.”

Public diplomacy is the area most often singled out for attention in the digital debate. Consequently, many government institutions are looking to effectively and securely execute their social media strategies. Last but not least, the digital revolution has also been accompanied by fundamental changes in international negotiation processes.

Digitalization poses many questions such as: Is the digital revolution going to transform diplomacy and the way in which foreign policy is made? Is there more for digital diplomacy than just the use of social media by foreign ministries, embassies and individual diplomats?

In the first session, the authors will present the groundbreaking report ‘Diplomacy in the Digital Age’, which is the result of a partnership between the Clingendaele Institute, Egmont and the MFA of Finland and Belgium. In the second session, the speakers will go beyond the report, analyzing what should be the diplomatic strategy in a digital world.

We are glad to announce that this seminar will be held in the presence of the Minister Alexander De Croo, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Development Cooperation, in charge of the Digital Agenda.
