October WebDebate[diplomacy.us5.list-manage.com], on Tuesday, 4th October at 
11 UTC, focuses on the key skills that the next generation of diplomats needs

The presenters will include examples and point to best practices from their

Jovan Kurbalija.

Join us for our next WebDebate on Tuesday, 4th October at 11:00 UTC (13.00
