Multilateral Conferences and Diplomacy
20 Feb 2012 - 16 Mar 2012

Governments and increasingly other actors such as international and non-governmental organizations use multilateral conferences as a means, and sometimes the only means, to achieve important policy objectives. Twenty years after the milestone conference took place in Rio de Janeiro it is still vital to equip delegates with effective tools and techniques to negotiate in multilateral fora such as the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development - Rio+20. As the number of conferences and meetings has risen considerably over the past twenty years, the number of government officers and other stakeholders involved in conference processes has also increased significantly. While diplomats remain at the centre of diplomacy, government officials assigned to line ministries and agencies, as well as staff of intergovernmental organizations and NGOs, are increasingly finding themselves in the role of the multilateral conference delegate. This online course will help diplomats enhance their performance as a conference delegate, and as a result contribute to the overall efficiency and productiveness of conferences.
