Cultural Diplomacy in Africa Research

Participant Papers from ICD Conferences

Participant Papers

The Academy for Cultural Diplomacy encourages academic research and analysis of issues related to the goals of our individual forums, conferences and the institute as a whole. This may include, for example, studies in the fields of culture, international politics, economics, law, history, philosophy, peace and conflict studies, communication studies, anthropology, musicology, art history, and linguistics.

The Academy for Cultural Diplomacy would therefore like to welcome the participants of our conferences to submit a paper they would like to be considered for delivery at their program. This may be an article written especially for purpose, or an article they have already submitted as an academic essay, or equivalent. We are also able to accept collaborative pieces of work from groups of students.

Participant papers should be submitted to the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy no later than 7 days before the Weeklong Seminar/Conference/Event

To submit a Paper please complete the Application Form in the Left Hand Side:
