Course summary

Recent advances in the globalisation of communications technology - particularly the Internet, direct broadcast satellites and telecommunications have mutated the world in which traditional diplomacy was conceived and developed.

Social Media including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube have a tremendous impact. US President Donald Trump utilises Twitter on a daily basis to comment on national events in the US and international events in other parts of the world. Making the situation even more complex is the phenomena of "fake news” - where false reports are tweeted and retweeted globally to the extent that many find it difficult to distinguish what is factual from what is totally false.

While globalisation had provided an ethos and the context, it is the tragic events of 9/11, the subsequent fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen and the proliferation of violent non-state actors, as well as the proliferation of immigrants which together have prompted the vital need to identify a new form of diplomacy.

GCU London’s International Diplomacy Programmes are designed to address the growing global market needs in the areas of diplomacy, international business, international security and international communication. The development of appropriate understanding and acquisition of relevant skills in these areas have become essential for the effective management of international interaction at public and private levels alike.
