Diplo's new publication: the Book of Abstracts
Diplo's new publication, the Book of Abstracts, presents the research work of some of the best participants of the 2010/2011 educational and research programme. The publication was launched during the 6th IGF in Nairobi, on 27-30 September 2011.
The authors of the featured research papers are practitioners representing various stakeholders. Their professional and cultural backgrounds have a broad reach. Their work thus reflects their policy work experience combined with accumulated knowledge, introducing a fresh breeze of thought into the already well-mapped thematic field of IG.
The participation and the work of the authors from ACP countries (marked with * in the text) has been financed by the EU @CP-ICT Programme, 9th European Development Fund (EDF), in partnership with the Secretariat of the ACP Group of States.
