It has been said that the Diplomatic profession is becoming obsolete in this globalised world, especially between well-connected and like-minded countries. 

In this workshop, we will challenge this myth by examining recent events and the role of Canada‚Äôs diplomatic network in protecting and advancing Canadian interests.  Ambassador Louise Blais, will provide real life scenarios to lead group discussions on how people-to-people linkages still are at the heart of getting things done.  Yet, she will also explore how the public arena including Social Media are transforming the practice of diplomacy with a focus on western democracies.   

Through the examination of current events, Blais will provoke discussion on how diplomacy is evolving but is more relevant than ever.

If you wish to have a behind the scenes practical view of Canadian diplomacy with a focus on the United States, this workshop will take you beyond the news headlines into the trenches of day to day practice of diplomacy in a digital world.
