Join us in Geneva for the first event of the new GCSP-series “The Geneva Security Debates” with:

Ambassador Thomas Greminger -Swiss Diplomat and Director of the GCSP and former Secretary-General of the OSCE
What is diplomacy? An art, a craft? Or something in between? What makes a good diplomat? What tips and tricks help to break the deadlock? How do diplomatic cultures and styles differ in different countries? How does the work of today's diplomats differ from that of their predecessors? Two of the world’s most seasoned diplomats will offer you their advice on what really matters when negotiating war and peace.
This debate launches the book “The Art of Diplomacy” in Geneva. The book compiled by Tobias Bunde and Benedikt Franke brings together renowned companions of Prof. Dr. h.c. Wolfgang Ischinger - including several current and former heads of state and government - who reflect on fascinating questions of diplomacy.
Taking the reader behind the scenes of diplomacy, they reveal their most astonishing experiences, successes, and failures on the diplomatic stage, or outline their ideas for the diplomatic handling of unresolved challenges. A book for anyone who wants to better understand what matters when negotiating war and peace.
Join our in-person event to learn more about diplomacy from two of the world’s most seasoned diplomats. This is the first of many Geneva Security Debates to come.
