For Public Diplomacy Practitioners and Stakeholders.

Effective implementation of international agreements requires public diplomacy practitioners and various actors to work together and strengthen their collaborative and integrated approaches with stakeholders. 
For the contributions of non-state actors toward the successful implementation of agreements to be meaningful and useful, capacity development is required to enhance their knowledge.
Both public diplomats and stakeholders require access to information to fully understand their roles and mechanisms that can be used to engage effectively with one another, governments, and international organizations.

E-Learning (Free Non-Degree Courses)

One of the key goals of the Institut de diplomatie publique as a non-state stakeholder in public diplomacy is to engage in intergovernmental decision and policy-making processes through access to intergovernmental processes and events.

 In this context, higher skills and newly acquired awareness are needed for public diplomacy practitioners to demonstrate a high level of engagement in all major intergovernmental processes related to the 2030 Agenda for the most effective outcomes.

All external courses listed below are recommended by the Institute and therefore offer CPD points. Members should use their own discretion and judgment when deciding which courses qualify for CPD and are of relevance.
