Conference Diplomacy: An Introductory Analysis
Springer, 2016 M07 27 - 214 pages
How can a delegation to a conference get its initiative adopted, or another delegation's proposal rejected? How is a conference delegation composed? What is a permanent mission? What effect can an inefficient conference president have? In which way can secretariats of international organizations influence the results of international conferences? The answers to these questions can be found in Johan Kaufmann's path-breaking Conference Diplomacy , originally published in 1968. Conference Diplomacy will be useful to junior and senior diplomats, and to international civil servants. It has found, and will increasingly find, a place in courses on international relations, on negotiations techniques and in teaching for the diplomatic career.
