Portland hosted an event at Canada House on Tuesday 24 March to discuss how diplomacy is changing.
Diplomacy must adapt. Unlike previous changes in technology, adapting to social media is more than merely adapting to the technology – it is accepting a new communications hierarchy.
Digital diplomacy has meant that diplomatic engagement is no longer an exclusive activity. People at all levels can engage, and choose to connect with governments the world over using online tools and platforms. People are empowered to reach out to their own governments and others, and when they do, they demand engagement.
We assembled a panel of experts to discuss how this is changing communications, and what you need to know to be prepared.
