The Global Diplomacy Lab is a platform where experts from various fields explore new forms of diplomacy together to address the complex and often intersecting challenges we face today.  Based on mutual trust and common interests, this platform enables stakeholders to develop and re-formulate agendas on complex issues for collective action and individual, institutional and policy levels.

“Good communication,
mutual interest,
enriching exchanges.”
