Operating under a joint partnership, The Euro-Mediterranean University (EMUNI), and the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy are the first institutions to offer a Master of Arts degree program that will educate students from around the world in several academic disciplines related to International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy with an emphasis on Euro-Mediterranean Studies. The MA Program is designed therefore to provide students with an in-depth awareness and expertise in the discipline of International Relations and Cultural Diplomacy, within the context of the Euro-Mediterranean region.
Key Objectives of the Program:
·To provide students with an in depth understanding of the theory and practice of international relations within the contemporary interdependent world placing a particular emphasis on cultural diplomacy within this framework
·To educate students about cultural diplomacy within the context of the political, economic and cultural pillars upon which sustainable international relations are based.
·To analyze soft power and hard power strategies within the international relations discourse in the recognition that each element is mutually important and compatible in what Prof. Joseph Nye has characterized as “smart power.”
