Diplomacy is the key instrument in fulfilling a country’s foreign policy objective of influencing other countries and securing its national interest as well as for preserving peace against war. Diplomacy has a significant role in guiding international relations through the mediation of professional diplomats with regard to issues of peace-making, war, trade, environment, economics, culture, and human rights. Due to the high importance of building the diplomatic capacities of OIC Member States, SESRIC launched the Diplomacy Capacity Building Programme (Diplomacy-CaB) in 2017 to provide trainings on issues of interest to the OIC diplomatic community.
