Weretelnik Oleg_ Institite for public diplomacy

The nature of international relations has undergone a significant change with the emergence of non-state actors (NSAs) and new processes that are shaping diplomatic practices and international affairs. In addition to the traditional international legal system, NSAs have become important participants of international law, with procedural rights, and specific roles in the implementation of international law. 
However, the perspectives of vulnerable populations, under-represented communities and minority groups in the international relations field are often disrespected, especially in tackling issues like poverty and inequality.

Institut de diplomatie publique is committed to ensuring meaningful, effective and informed participation of these groups as key stakeholders in issues that transcend national boundaries and cannot be resolved by any one country acting alone. 

Given the focus on new multistakeholder partnerships (SDG 17), the Institute is positioned as an affirmative alternative to state-directed or government-sponsored public diplomacy models. At the Institute, we created a unique model where public diplomacy does not compete with traditional diplomatic and international law approaches – it complements and strengthens it.
