... No, these days, the one thing that will have people in offices around the world twiddling their thumbs is not having Internet connection. Oops - my Internet is down therefore I can't work. I can't check what is happening (because I have no Internet). ...

What are digital currencies and how do they work? What is the value of this ‘digital money’ and their economic impact? How secure and private are these transactions, and what is the role of cryptography in them? Are fluctuations in Bitcoin value important? What are the risks of an anonymous and decentralised currency system? How do regulators around the world react to crypto currencies? What is next? Join us in Geneva or remotely on 13 June to discuss the political, technical, business, and developmental aspects of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

What is the state of e-participation in Geneva International? Is the use of social media increasing inclusiveness and engagement?  Does remote participation help developing countries and small island states influence international decisions? What impact does citizen engagement and open data have on the work of international organisations?

 To learn more about these issues,  join us for E-participation Day  on 19 June 2013 in Geneva where you will have the opportunity to listen to experts from The Global Fund, ICANN, IGF, ITU, Open Data Research Network, UNDP, WHO and others, including Diplo Foundation.

You are invited to either attend in person or participate remotely by watching the  broadcast and interacting through the live blog. The full programme is available here. Please note that registration is required.

The event is organized in cooperation with the Permanent Mission of Switzerland to the United Nations, the Canton of Geneva (Geneva International), Geneva Centre for Security Policy and Media Vision.

Story
Tagline
Towards more inclusive and effective diplomacy
Introduction
Diplo's main activities:

Capacity development. Diplo’s capacity development support begins with individuals, but through the activities of these individuals, our impact reaches into the larger systems of which they and their organisations are a part. Our approach includes online training, policy research, policy immersion, and the development of communities of practice, combined in various ways, as appropriate to each policy context.

Events. In order to deal with pressing issues in global governance, our events bring people together from different perspectives, including diplomats, business professionals, and members of civil society. Our events often have an 'afterlife', evolving into teaching activity, publication, or online interaction.

Courses.  We offer postgraduate level academic courses and training workshops on a variety of diplomacy-related topics for diplomats, civil servants, staff of international organisations and NGOs, and students of international relations. Combining a highly developed learning methodology with our unique online learning platform, our diplomatic training courses are flexible, personal, interactive and community-building. Courses are delivered online, face-to-face and in blended format.

Research. We are addressing the limitations of existing policy research through internet-based techniques including crowd-sourcing, trend analysis, and collaborative research. Topics include diplomacy of small states, virtual diplomacy, health diplomacy, and environmental diplomacy.

Publications. Our publications range from examination of contemporary developments in diplomacy to new analyses of traditional aspects of diplomacy. Many of our publications are available online as well as in traditional print format and some have been translated into several languages. We also publish DiploNews, a biweekly e-mail newsletter distributed to a mailing list of over 5000 recipients.
