Humankind is indisputably entering a new digital era. The impact of rapid technological and scientific advances on our lives is so great that World Economic Forum’s founder Klaus Schwab termed this process as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We are the witnesses of the transcendence through new frontiers. These new frontiers go beyond traditional understanding of every aspect of human activity. The rapid advancement of Artificial Intelligence is is further accelerating the need for professionals across all sectors to adapt and update their knowledge and skills as quickly as possible.Those involved in diplomacy and international affairs can no longer afford to slowly adapt to those changes as their pace demands almost business-like agility to stay abreast and relevant. Diplomacy 4.0 is UNITAR’s answer to these new challenges, exploring the connection between diplomacy and areas of artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, scientific advancements and other significant issues, providing participants with the knowledge and skills to future-proof their careers as international affairs professionals. 


The Diplomacy 4.0 Training Programme is primarily geared towards diplomats and foreign ministry officials.  Government officials and participants from the broader diplomatic community, the private sector, civil society and academia will also benefit from the programme.

In order to ensure the highest quality standards, the registration will be closed after 30 participants.

Upon completion of the Diplomacy 4.0 Training Programme, each participant will be presented with an official certificate from the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
