In the next couple of years, foreign policy - and diplomacy - will focus on supporting countries to navigate the looming economic crisis, the changing geopolitical settings, the economic challenges and opportunities, and the boost to connectivity and digitalization processes.
In this regard, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated existing trends and generated useful best practices. Sharing those, and exchanging knowledge and personal experience with colleagues from all over the world will enable the diplomatic stakeholders to answer those challenges by making more informed decisions; identify economic opportunities and new areas of international focus.
To address these needs for, the Abba Eban Institute for Diplomacy is launching the DiploMarket, a first-of-its-kind online platform that provides a “one-stop-shop” for professionals in foreign relations and their ecosystem in the Post-COVID-19 diplomatic era.
The solution for your diplomatic challenges are probably out there, whether experienced in other countries or in different sectors. We are here to bring them home to you, with direct connection to the experts and practitioners themselves.
Therefore, DiploMarket serves two main purposes:
1. Bring all the relevant knowledge, recent developments, best practices and useful information at the core issues of foreign policy and diplomacy - Geopolitics, Innovation and technology, Economic Diplomacy, Development, Consular Services and more, as well as from complementary industries, all under one roof.
2. Provide diplomats and foreign affairs professionals with an intuitive, easy-to-use platform to share their experience and knowledge, to connect, to learn from each other, to be inspired, and to cooperate where and when it is needed.
The DiploMarket seeks to answer the need for a flexible and proactive foreign policy. Knowledge-sharing and colaboration is key to tackle the challenges ahead, as much as it is key to identify new opportunities.
