At a time when new forms of violence are currently on the rise, we must remember and learn from the global cooperation and the diverse UN initiatives of the past, which have allowed some of us the privilege to no longer live in a region of peoples divided, cultures suppressed and voices oppressed.

The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy will dedicate the International Symposium on Cultural Diplomacy in the UN 2018 to build on this past experience in order to formulate new initiatives, which will strengthen international relations and encourage cooperation between diverse communities based upon values of peace, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.
