International Forum on Diplomatic Training (IFDT)

The 2016 IFDT will take place from 21 to 23 September 2016 in Canberra, Australia and will be hosted by the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy at the Australian National University. This year’s agenda will focus on challenges and opportunities for diplomacy in, what has been widely dubbed, the Asian Century. In this context, the IFDT will look at the big picture of current trends, the regional picture of Asia-Pacific diplomacy, and the picture of the diplomat who has to develop skill-sets to navigate both challenges and opportunities in Asia and beyond.
