The Academy Session will explore the history and development of the field of cultural diplomacy and will provide a platform for discussions on a diverse range of related issues including immigration and integration, language and identity, citizenship, and the role of civil society in building bridges between cultural communities.
In addition to looking at the history and development of the field of cultural diplomacy and its contemporary application across the world, the forthcoming Academy Session will focus on the societal, economic, and political benefits of arts and culture.
