Twenty-five junior Italian diplomats took part in a training workshop on communication skills organized by UNSSC at the UN Campus in Turin, Italy from 24 to 30 January 2010. During a full day simulation exercise developed by UNITAR, participants identified and practiced key skills for negotiation, drafting and decision-making in United Nations conferences. The workshop is part of an ongoing collaboration with the Diplomatic Institute of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Over the past two years, UNITAR has conducted customized training in diplomacy for negotiators and representatives from Eritrea, France, Iraq, Kenya, Oman, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Uzbekistan, ASEAN and SADC.
