Former Canadian diplomat Daryl Copeland calls diplomacy the world’s second oldest profession, and is convinced more than ever before it, rather than military solutions, is the best approach to dealing with issues such as climate change, pandemic diseases, and food and water insecurity.
In a just released policy paper titled “Diplomacy, Globalization and Heteropolarity: The Challenge of Adaptation” written for the Canadian Defence & Foreign Affairs Institute (CDFAI), Copeland outlines some of the obstacles facing effective diplomacy, and some potential solutions.
RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to Daryl Copeland. Copeland worked in Canada’s foreign service for 30 years, is a Senior Fellow at the Canadian Defence & Foreign Affairs Institute, and the author of the book “Guerrilla Diplomacy: Rethinking International Relations“.
