The program aims to equip the diplomats with the skills to operate confidently in bilateral and multilateral environments, enhancing their multicultural analytical capabilities. The program also promotes knowledge-exchange between African diplomats and European experts.

By the end of the program, African diplomats will have an understanding of key global issues, advanced insights into European Union institutions and policies – especially with regards to Italy’s role – and enhanced multicultural, analytical skills and critical thinking.

On the long-term, the program aims to build a pan-African and Italo-African community of diplomats and practitioners dedicated to fostering peace, security, and sustainable development.
