2011, Continuum

In the 21st century, new kinds of challenges resulting from interdependence among states and globalisation have had a determining impact of the conduct of diplomacy. Diplomacy has become multifaceted, pluri-directional, volatile and intensive, due to the increased complexity in terms of actors, dialogue subjects, modes of communication, and plurality of objectives. This unique text examines all such factors to provide the definitive guide to diplomacy as it is practiced today.
