About Us

What is CDF?

The Cultural Diplomacy Forum (CDF) was established with the purpose of creating a space for research and discussion on different aspects of Cultural Diplomacy.
The Forum aims to act as a bridge between academia and the policy-making sphere, as well as the public and private sectors, in the cultural diplomacy arena. 

The annual conference aims to offer a fruitful meeting point between diplomats, cultural representatives, researchers and organizations holding a shared interest in cultural policy. The conference offers a unique innovative format emphasizing collaboration and dialogue between parties towards the promotion of research and practical tools of cultural diplomacy.
