At the same time, the EU has also set up a foreign policy establishment – EEAS, is meant to represent all 27 member states of the EU common interests. However, the new European Union diplomats with the existing division of responsibilities between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs is still not clear. In Asia and other regions, most of the same program is still brewing. However, as the ASEAN Regional Forum, the African Union and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization member of the Organization, many countries have more and more attention to the matters of common interest to coordinate policies.
Localism has become the mainstream of global politics – but in the U.S. policy-makers view, localism and global politics are seen as mutually antagonistic. In Clinton’s mouth, the major global challenges facing the United States is how to improve the state to state, as well as between all levels of society in all corners of the world to communicate. To this end, Ann-Marie Slaughter, the United States singled out for the world’s people, institutions and relationships important to the network hub.
But just as the U.S. network of ideas to talk about the same time, other countries are busy series alliances. Diametrically opposite to the path may be staggered do? No reason to say no. Both of the idea were attractive, in line with the traditional norms governing international relations. Of particular note is that this with the Thomas Jefferson, “to live in peace with all countries, business contacts, sincere and friendly” desire to be consistent, Clinton may be further extended to “between individuals and groups at home and abroad.”
However, both individuals and countries, they do not exist Folks interests. Bill Clinton’s global network of ideas have been setbacks. Finally, the U.S. will gradually found that the traditional way of doing things – the signing of an agreement, sending envoys to develop guidelines and other means of forming an alliance – and perhaps is useful.
Since the Renaissance in Italy produced a modern diplomacy, countries around the world recognized by sheep book or video conference to exchange envoys reached (or cancel) the agreement necessary. In a globalized world, its importance seems to have been replaced.
Nevertheless, we should not negate the science and technology in the important impact around the world. AT & T for the exchange of information between countries to save for a few weeks time, aircraft and telephone so that national leaders more frequently than in the past with each other. Similarly, today’s technology, will continue to advance our fundamental means of communication, national, regional or super regional entities is also true.
However, we must be cautious to avoid the means and purpose of the policy mix. The quality and speed of communication is not the main purpose, at least for diplomats is the case. Recalling the recent ending of the UN climate conference in Copenhagen, although no one wants to miss, to speak at a round of applause, but also carefully worked hard to implement, but still unable to avoid confusion and disappointment at the results of the General Assembly. If such “Global Summit” to continue into the 21st century the main means of global governance, we really have to demonstrate that worried.
Fortunately, the Copenhagen, the General Assembly against the trend is also noteworthy that appears. To reach a consensus of the States to unite and jointly develop the power: how to deal with climate change and involves the immediate interests of some small countries, a move for them is striking. In this grouping phenomenon be treated with caution, under the premise that they may strengthen rather than undermine the foundation of a global consensus.
In fact, such a mechanism has long been an international force. During World War I, President Woodrow Wilson had announced the launch of the so-called “new diplomacy” open covenants and of collective security to replace the state secrets and the balance of power. At the same time, many people have this as an idealistic missionary in the whimsical. Today’s world, power politics still exist and are popular. Still, can ‘t be denied is that diplomacy in 2010 compared with 1910, is significantly different and no doubt more superior, and the results have also been an overall improvement. The so-called “old diplomacy” of certain important factors still play a role: national and regional interests as the basis of the coordination of foreign policy between the ideal and the possible focus on the latter, the development of today’s so-called “confidence-building measures.” In fact, these methods are a small minority of professional negotiators and their representatives and their confidence-building between groups.
Just as today’s global network of supporters claimed, was that the gradual abandonment of the 20th century diplomacy, the secret is entirely executed by the political elite. This view is a misreading of history. We need only look at the modern media for this stage all the major international conferences to reports, will be able to recognize the various pressure groups – not including the media, as well as “peace activists”, bankers, industrialists, trade unions, religious organizations and numerous other groups – in all such situations manifest importance.
In fact, the diplomat has always been the most superior skills, social contact and communicate with people. The African Forum They have been dealing with a variety of agendas and policies of supporters, the latter was in the 30s of last century the impact loudly asked the International Union Conference on Disarmament, it was also holding a microphone at the Copenhagen Conference in December last year, so rightly.
