Conferences | Networking | Public lectures | Seminars | Workshops

Between September and December 2021 Dr. Colin Alexander (Nottingham Trent University, UK) will host 9 public lectures discussing the fascinating subject of public diplomacy.

Academics, students, practitioners and other interested parties are all welcome.

Event details

This research seminar will examine the recent trend of city administrations as international actors of growing importance and thus the emergence city diplomacy. Using their expertise from Europe and North America, Amiri and Kihlgren Grandi will examine the neoliberal pivot within city diplomacy over the last thirty years arguing that, while opportunities for networking and investment may have improved, the ability of the city to act as an independent unit of foreign policy distinct from its parent state has been compromised. This is particularly important when it comes to the likelihood of cities to act morally on the international stage or simply to include moral principle within their outputs.
