The Power of Small Nation Diplomacy in the 21stCentury | Mark Muller Stuart |

The first decade of the 21st Century has witnessed an unprecedented increase in conflict and terror related activities across the globe leading to the implosion of old world certainties in places like Europe and the MENA region. Join Mark Muller Stuart as he explores why this might be so as he charts the rise of a number of remarkable, new innovative non-state and small power mediators who have helped ameliorate some of the world’s most intractable conflicts by using soft power tools. Discover the power of non-state and small nation dialogue as Mark reveals just how powerful Scotland’s voice could be in the field of conflict resolution and international affairs more generally.
