Yakın geçmişin sözlü yasası “Tabağı boş göndermek olmaz”, artık dünyada anlam kazanıyor. 2. Global GastroEkonomi Zirvesi’nde tanıştığımız ‘gastrodiplomasi’ kavramına bu gözle bakmak da mümkün. Kültürlerarası iletişimin yeni aktörlerini uzmanlardan dinledik.
Klişe ama gerçek: Yemek asla sadece yemek değildir! Üstelik bu, sadece son dönemin hikâyesi değil, kalubeladan beri böyle. Antikçağlardan bugüne fetihler, göçler hatta saraylardaki üst düzey evlilikler yoluyla sürekli evrilen bir alan. Başından beri böyle dedik ama yeme-içmenin giderek daha fazla sektöre el atan bir ahtapot haline geldiğini görmemek de imkânsız. TURYİD’in (Turizm Restoran Yatırımcıları ve Gastronomi İşletmeleri Derneği) ikincisini düzenlediği Global GastroEkonomi Zirvesi, bu yenilikleri masaya yatırmak için ideal platformdu. İşte sunumlarda öne çıkanlar…

I grew up in New London, Connecticut, watching many a military ship float by my window. New London was home to the Coast Guard Academy and sat across the river from a U.S. Navy submarine base. Uniformed guardsmen, sailors in training, and sub crews leaving port would regularly wave to my friends and me from the decks of their ships. It never occurred to me that, 50 years later, such ships would come to my attention again, this time because of the confusing messages they’re sending overseas, a reflection of the conflicting images embedded in Washington’s latest version of diplomacy and foreign policy.
We still want populations around the world to admire, appreciate, and respect this country as a democracy and a powerful protector. Some ships are used to make exactly that point. And yet, in the twenty-first-century version of war American-style, other ships have become the..

– Madame President– Mr. Board Chairman– Distinguished other Board Members, especially Rev. Dr. Marlowe V.N. Washington,– Distinguished and talented Faculty here at Keuka College,– And most important of all today: graduating members of the Class of 2019:-It is my great honor to be with you today. You have bestowed on me the greatest honor of my life by inviting me to speak to you on the 56th anniversary of the rev. Martin Luther King’s appearance here in 1963. I am daunted and humbled and very nervous as I attempt to meet this challenge and uphold your high standards. I hope that you will find my remarks useful.

Kosovo’s capital still doesn’t have running water 24 hours a day, but you can get a great beer thanks to the Sabaja Craft Brewery. The microbrewery opened up in Pristina, Kosovo’s capital, last year. It brews American-style ales, including a delicious IPA. “It’s the only beer of its kind in Kosovo,” according to Alex Butler,

Canada: Diverse and equal voices
In both the Americas and France, much has been written and said about the ways governments can use cultural diplomacy as a tool of foreign policy. Governments might, for example, share scientific, academic, literary and artistic research, ideas and creations, and exchange comparative perspectives on a variety of topics within the cultural field. They pursue these kinds of activities in a bid to have a positive influence, initiate a dialogue with the potential to move beyond the realm of ideas and culture, and to maintain ties that could soften economic or political disagreements, if not military conflicts.
Of course, countries—and especially governments—vary in their approach. These differences are marked by the size of their budgets, the specific tools they implement, their public diplomacy [JB emphasis] directives and, incre..
