6-16 June 2021
Montreal, Canada

Join the IPSA-Concordia University Summer School in Applied Diplomacy for its 2nd iteration in Montreal, Canada on 6-16 June 2022!

After a very successful inaugural run in 2021, this exciting program offers a mixture of theoretical and applied sessions on all aspects of diplomacy as well as a hands-on applied Diplomacy Lab and the opportunity to interact with some of the world’s leading experts on diplomacy from academic and policy backgrounds. Two field trips allow participants to explore how diplomacy occurs in the real-world context as well as provide opportunities to network.

We invite all graduate students, young researchers and professionals to participate in the upcoming IPSA-Concordia Summer School in Applied Diplomacy.

Applications are due on 15 May 2022. Attendance is required in person if the summer school is taken for academic credit, but an audit-only version exists virtually for those interested in participating in the course for enrichment purposes.
