Fields of non-traditional diplomacy, such as Education Diplomacy, require the use of diplomatic skills to build bridges across sectors, diverse actors, and borders.

Negotiation Skills is a practical, interactive online course that equips participants with the skills to successfully prepare, undertake, and conclude negotiations in formal and informal settings with government and non-government actors. The course will introduce the role of negotiation in non-traditional diplomacy interactions that take place to advance education, health, internet governance, humanitarian efforts, and development. 

Advancing education requires building bridges across multiple disciplines. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn and collaborate with colleagues working to advance their work through forms of non-traditional diplomacy in other sectors.
