What will happen in your session?

How does technology affect nowaday's diplomacy and policymaking? Latter has been distancing itself more and more from the traditional communication model, switching over to a much more decentralized model. We will look into what implications this shift has had for foreign politics and policymaking with other countries. How do we perceive negotiations in this time and age and how does Free Software helps us Security and Privacy -wise in these aspects? Taking lessons from Mozilla and how its strategy aims to disrupt the way we use the internet so anyone can have equal open access. Why Mozilla can be a great role model for modern diplomacy, taking some lessons from Mozilla Advocacy and the Mozilla Manifesto.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

The goal of my talk is to show the audience that technology and FLOSS projects are effecting the international area and it's the right time to redefine the concept of the new diplomacy. The old-skool times where people could only imagine diplomacy as a high level gathering in a fancy office is now outdated. Say hello to online diplomacy and doing the same job online with a similar, if not more productive outcome traditional diplomacy has had.. Last but not least we will have a look at how the usage of a language can be a big powerplay in the diplomatic relationships of one country.

Hey Kristi,

This sounds like a great talk to help contextualise some of the other, very tech-specific talks that've been proposed. It'd be great to hear @cubicgarden and @dvigneshwer's thoughts - I'd be keen to feature a discussion around this topic too.

Hi @kristiprogri ,

Thanks for the proposal. I really like the talk domain and super curious about your content.

Yes, I agree with you that technology has been a game changer for traditional governance and there's a lot we can learn from Mozilla's work in this domain.

I had a couple questions for you:

  • Can you elaborate a little more on the decentralized communication model mentioned in the proposal?
  • Do you plan to discuss in detail about any case study or success stories of online diplomacy?

@kristiprogri thanks for your patience and for submitting this proposal - we very much like the idea of it! I know you mentioned that a travel stipend would make a lot of difference but we have a limited number of travel and accommodation stipends to go around and these are now pretty much all assigned. Do you think you be able to come and run this session without the aid of a stipend?
