Conclusion

 

 


The Humanitas Chair in Statecraft and Diplomacy has been made possible by the generous support of Mrs Angelika Diekmann.

The Humanitas Visiting Professorship in Statecraft and Diplomacy aims to bring to Cambridge some of the world's leading practitioners in this general field. Using their personal experience and close engagement in contemporary events, they can provide a vivid and direct insight into vital areas of international affairs, where transparency is rarely available. They will also help to build bridges of interpretation and understanding between the theoreticians of international studies, and those most closely involved in shaping the initiatives and activities of nation states, alliances and international organisations in a period of global dynamism, uncertainty and change. This Visiting Professorship promises to help throw light on a profession famous for its discretion and the practice of its 'dark arts'.
