Cultural Diplomacy News


Our Blogs

In order to further promote the field of Cultural Diplomacy, the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy has created a number of blogs focused on a variety of issues. Blog contents include articles on a wide range of topics, including human rights, youth education and development, cultural initiatives, and international relations, as well as information about our upcoming events and programs.

The ICD has therefore developed interactive platforms for the following topics:
