The Catalonia CCD primary activity focuses on the development and the promotion of the field of Cultural Diplomacy with the aim to raise awareness and understanding of the field across the globe both locally and internationally. The Catalonia CCD works to develop new and innovative initiatives in the field of cultural diplomacy. In addition to promoting cultural diplomacy through its own initiatives, the Catalonia CCD also promotes cultural diplomacy by actively supporting the work that is already being done in this area by partnering and communicating with other actors in the field.

Our activities include:

Research & Publications

The Research & Publication program undertaken by Catalonia CCD consisting of components focused on analyzing and interpreting key challenges facing culture and society in the contemporary era. As the field continues to grow, further research undertaken on the role and potential of Cultural Diplomacy consequently develops. The research therefore focuses on expanding the current understanding of Cultural Diplomacy, as well as the methods for which Cultural Diplomacy can be successfully implemented.

By providing an informed academic portal resource which offers a diverse and current range of examples of Cultural Diplomacy, we can increase the access to and further the development of the field. We aim to highlight the potential utility of this important tool as a valid policy option in achieving conflict resolution and strengthening bilateral relations in the event that traditional diplomacy fails.

International Conferences

International Conferences focus on salient issues in a variety of fields ranging from Cultural Diplomacy and International Relations to Sustainable Development. The International Conferences provide an opportunity for larger audiences to actively participate and engage in lectures, debates, and discussions featuring high-profile figures from the fields of international politics, diplomacy, culture, academia, and the private sector.

Young Leaders' Forums

Young Leaders' Forums are international networks of like-minded individuals who share an interest in strengthening intercultural relations within a region or country, or between particular regions or countries. The first young leader's forum aim to improve relations between states focusing on diverse bi- and multi-lateral relationships within and between the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America.
