Education Diplomacy uses the skills of diplomacy to promote effective cooperation across sectors and among diverse actors to solve education challenges and advance transformational agendas for education.
Education diplomats use the skills of diplomacy to:
Diagnose an education challenge
Understand the diverse stakeholders involved in an education challenge
Find common ground among different priorities about the role and benefits of education
Shape consensus on solutions to an education challenge
Lead the advancement of transformative agendas for education.
Education Diplomacy recognizes the expanding participation of individuals and groups in topics of global concern and influencing relationships between nations, across sectors, and among respective stakeholders. Due in large part to greater access to knowledge, information, and technology, participants or “non-state” actors outside of official government diplomatic capacity engage in platforms that improve cooperation, coordination, and collaboration toward advancing common social and economic agendas. In addition, current 21st century challenges require cooperative efforts that are best achieved by acquiring the foundational skills of diplomacy.
