“The New Diplomacy: 21st Century Challenges in Foreign Policy”
Ambassador Cameron Munter
President & CEO of East West Institute
Former US Ambassador to Serbia & Pakistan
In the 21st century, many problems defy simple state to state solutions. For example, what do we do about the ongoing refugee crisis, climate change, and cyber-security? Cyber-security for example, is the ultimate trans-national threat. It is a challenge that is understood by few, but impacts everyone. It’s something to be dealt with by business, finance, governments, and individuals. It’s something abused by terrorists, and something used by nation-states as a new means for weak nations to take on more powerful adversaries.
How do we get beyond the traditional diplomats in an embassy working in a 19th century fashion? Who are the people who should be involved in the new conversations that need to be taking place? Are they young people? Are they women? Are they people who have been disenfranchised in the past? The overriding question is, “Can we get the answers that we want?” Can we get beyond the simple question that defines country to country?
As someone who has worked both as a diplomat at our nation’s highest levels, and as a CEO and President of a nonprofit, addressing these new questions, Ambassador Cameron Munter is uniquely positioned to explain the challenges, and contribute to the conversation of how the world can work together to solve these new 21st century issues.
