What is Diplomacy


 

1. Diplomacy

 

What is diplomacy?

 

Diplomacy is the art and practice of conducting negotiations between representatives of groups or states. It usually refers to international diplomacy, the conduct of international relations through the intercession of professional diplomats with regard to issues of peace-making, trade, wars, economics, cultures, environment and human rights.

 

 International treaties are usually negotiated by diplomats prior to endorsement by national politicians. In an informal or social sense, diplomacy is the employment of tact to gain strategic advantage or to find mutually acceptable solutions to a common challenge, one set of tools being the phrasing of statements in a non-confrontational or polite manner.

 

The process of diplomatic processes, dealing with the study of old documents, also owes its name to the above, but its present meaning is completely distinct from that of diplomacy.
