School Leadership and Education Diplomacy
Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals agenda is a holistic undertaking that requires collaboration and partnership across all stakeholders and sectors. School leaders need to consider their role and capacity to contribute to these broader development goals. This paper, which served as the foundation for a workshop presented by at the UNESCO-APEID international conference on 8 November 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand, argues that school leaders require a new set of diplomacy skills that allows them to better meet the challenges they face and ensure inclusive and equitable education and lifelong learning for all. These education challenges require collaborative and cooperative efforts that can best be achieved by acquiring the foundational skills of Education Diplomacy.
