The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy
Founded in 1999, The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) is an international, not-for-prot, non-governmental organization with headquarters in Berlin, Germany. Over thepast decade the ICD has grown to become one of Europe’s largest independent culturalexchange organizations. Our programs facilitate interaction between individuals of allcultural, academic, and professional backgrounds, from across the world.
The ICD´s Goal
The ICD was established to promote global peace and stability through strengtheningand supporting intercultural relations at all levels.
The ICD´s Philosophy
The ICD understands that in an increasingly globalized world in which people are ableto travel and exchange information faster than ever before, there is a growing interde-pendency between nations. As a result, constructive intercultural interaction is the fun-damental requirement for global peace and stability in the 21st century.
“This philosophy is the foundation of our activity and we take as our motivationthe countless examples throughout the world of peaceful and constructive interac-tion between different cultures” 
The ICD´s Activity
The ICD conducts activity to facilitate intercultural exchange, undertakes research intothe theory and practice of the eld of cultural diplomacy, and works to support theexisting organizations and institutions active in the area - both governmental and non-governmental.The facilitation of cultural exchange helps to create constructive, sustainable relation-ships based on dialogue, understanding, and trust and therefore reduces the likelihoodof socio-cultural, political, and military conicts.The ICD conducts and supports interdisciplinary research into the eld of cultural diplo-macy and promotes this to a diverse international audience. This research raises aware-ness and understanding of the history and development of the eld, and also highlightsthe range of different actors conducting cultural diplomacy and their various approa-ches.
