Marking an important milestone for the Bandaranaike International Diplomatic Training Institute (BIDTI), the maiden issue of the journal ‘Diplomacy & World Affairs’ was launched this week.
First copies of the Journal were presented to Minister of Foreign Affairs Tilak Marapana and Foreign Secretary Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha respectively.
Launching of the journal precedes the commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of the BIDTI, which will fall in September 2020.
The Journal encourages and inspires further examination into the discipline of diplomacy and International Relations. The BIDTI is indebted to the contributors for sharing their insights for the inaugural issue of the Journal.
The journal has been unveiled in a background of pivotal changes occurring in the world. Contributions to the Journal were made by individuals of various backgrounds, including diplomats, academics, researchers, lecturers as well as students of the Institute.
It is hoped that ‘Diplomacy & World Affairs’ will be well received by students of international relations and well-wishers alike.
