The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy is one of the world's leading conferences in the fields of international relations and cultural studies. This year´s event brings together key stakeholders from the US, Europe, and across the world to reflect on the future of US and European foreign policy and related issues.

The 2011 conference will focus on the theme "The Roles and Responsibilities of the US and Europe in the New Global Community". The theme was selected in recognition of significant developments in the field of international relations. The first is the development of a new global community with new sub-state and inter-state players, and new forms of influence and power. The second is the emergence of new global challenges including , natural disasters, disasters, financial instability, terrorism, health pandemics, and developments in the Arab world. These are all areas that require the building of sustainable, multilateral approaches by the international community.

In recognition of these developments, there is a demonstrable need to analyze and reflect on the activity of the US and Europe in addressing these new challenges. The conference will therefore begin with an assessment of the new global community, How has it been formed, how does it operate, and what changes are we likely see in the future? Following this, the focus will move to a consideration of the key challenges facing the global community today, from climate change and natural disasters to cultural differences. Finally, the program will build on these discussions to reflect on the positions of the US and Europe in this changing international environment. What do international partners expect of the US and Europe? And how can stronger transatlantic and international relationships be forged to ensure the cooperation necessary to tackle the challenges ahead?

The International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy 2011 serves as a platform to explore and analyze these current international developments.
