The ICD Young Leader´s Forum Annual Conference 2012
“Culture as an Emotion: The Magnetic Power of Arts & Music to Promote Democracy & Global Peace”
(International Conference, Berlin, December 13th-18th, 2012)
The ICD Young Leaders Forum Annual Conference 2012 is part of the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy’s Annual Academic Conference during which Cultural Diplomacy initiatives; key political, economic and social shifts and the changes in the International System are discussed. The aim of the conference this year is to reflect on the role of new actors, new initiatives and new targets in terms of key international issues and on how Cultural Diplomacy takes place.
In today’s rapidly globalizing world, the exploration of cultural diplomacy initiatives within the sphere of International Relations is vital. With the transition from the traditional bi-polar international structure towards a more multi-polar world understanding state perspectives, different cultures and different traditions is important if the international system is to remain stable. The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy recognizes that all areas of the international system must be addressed and the Annual Young Leaders Meeting and Academic Conference provide the opportunity to discuss the past year, present initiatives and the future of Cultural Diplomacy and International Relations:
