The Diplomacy course is a two-day training seminar designed to introduce students to the world of diplomacy, negotiation, and bargaining. The programme is designed to assist interested students in understanding how negotiations take place, the techniques they can use to produce the most efficient outcome, and the context in which such skills are essential. Seasoned diplomats, negotiators and members of society with insight into the world of diplomacy will be sharing their insight and experiences with students over the two days.
