The Commonwealth is an intergovernmental organization of 53 member states, which covers almost a quarter of the world’s entire land area and serves as an influential regional player in global political, economic and cultural affairs. The Commonwealth has a rich and diverse experience of best practices in cultural diplomacy and for this reason serves as a good organization in which to hold an International Symposium. In addition, the Commonwealth constitutes a global community where all members have an equal voice regardless of their size and population. Such a community, with its shared values and history, is the ideal forum for fostering mutual understanding and cooperation through cultural exchange and open dialogue.
The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy has therefore created the International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in the Commonwealth in order to build on this past experience and to formulate new initiatives, which will strengthen international relations and encourage cooperation between diverse communities based upon values of peace, democracy, human rights and the rule of law within the Commonwealth of Nations.
The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in the Commonwealth will address the most important issues related to cultural diplomacy in the region, and look for methods by which cultural bridges and dialogue can be improved between the Commonwealth and the rest of the world.
We look forward to meeting you and would appreciate your participation in the upcoming conference.
