Higher Education Diplomacy

Dates:
  • Wed 27 Jan 2021 12.30 - 14.00
  Add to Calendar 2021-01-27 12:30 2021-01-27 14:00 Europe/Paris Higher Education Diplomacy

If they ever did, Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) do not stand alone as ‘ivory towers’ separate from society and economy. Nor are HEIs completely removed from either the foreign policy of their home governments or from transnational governance. Indeed, recent Horizon 2020 programs have funded HEIs to undertake research into science and cultural diplomacy but have been relatively silent on the roles that these institutions might play in diplomacy. HEI roles and functions in diplomacy go beyond treating HEIs as mere ‘tools’ of public or civic diplomacy. Instead, this paper/seminar adopts and extends the classic typology of the Royal Society and American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to examine their (potential) deeper imbrication in diplomatic praxis.  

*This event will be on Zoom. Registered participants will receive the meeting ID and password on the day of the event.
