International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy
... far from being on the verge of a new order, the world has entered a pe-riod of great disorder. In facing these new dangers, a re-examination of oldpriorities is needed. Cultural diplomacy, in the widest sense, has increasedin importance, whereas traditional diplomacy and military power… are oflimited use in coping with most of these dangers.

The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy 2010:
Culture, Globalization, and International Relationsover the next Two Decades
The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy is one of the world’s leading conferences
in the elds of international relations and cultural studies. Held annually in Berlin by the In
stitute for Cultural Diplomacy, the event brings together renowned gures from international
politics and academia to speak to an interdisciplinary audience including diplomatic and po-litical representatives, scholars and academics, students and young professionals, and other
interested stakeholders. The International Symposium 2010 will focus on the relationship be
tween culture, international relations, and globalization through a program of lectures, paneldiscussions, debates, and cultural activities.
