Dear ITS students,

Humanitarian Affairs Asia will host the inaugural International Diplomacy Forum 2019 for 350 aspiring diplomats at the United Nations Conference Centre (UNCC) in Bangkok, Thailand to be held from 10 to 12 July 2019.

Designed to recognise, develop and enhance the next generation of global professionals and leaders, the inaugural Forum will comprise of practical sessions, interactive workshops, solution-based discussions, negotiation exercises, career advice and networking. Delivered by respected Ambassadors, MPs, Government officials, Media and World Leading Diplomacy Experts, delegates will gain fundamental skills, insights and opportunities, essential for their role as a social justice advocate within their future careers involving international relations and diplomacy.

Delegates will be provided with the opportunity to build a global, comprehensive and diverse professional network of other young leaders and to engage in a direct channel of interaction among diplomatic stakeholders within the International Diplomatic Community. Participating in this accredited platform, delegates will obtain an experience that differentiates individuals from the population of emerging graduates.

Whatever your speciality, whether it be trade, law, geopolitics, tech, finance, global security, community development or humanitarian advocacy, aspiring global leaders are invited to attend and connect with other like-minded young individuals, who are committed to leading in positive global change with real-world solutions.
