Creating the CAPA Forum for Full Track Diplomacy (APA2149.01)

Michael Cohen

The world of diplomacy is traditionally divided into three tracks consisting of Track 1 (high-level political, military leaders, and official negotiators who discuss major agreements), Track 2 (academics, religious leaders, and managers who focus on relationships and problem solving often in new ways), and Track 3 (People to People diplomacy). Underutilized is a fourth track which goes by a number of names, multi; whole, or full track diplomacy. In a world of ever increasing complexity this fourth track needs to be utilized more often and more effectively.

The CAPA Forum for Full Track Diplomacy will be a program where the actors from the classic three tracks of diplomacy can come together and learn how to better use and rely on each other as they work towards conflict mitigation and resolution.

This tutorial/workshop will do the legwork to setup the for Full Track Diplomacy. We will accomplish this by creating a bibliography, researching Full-Track Diplomacy, create goals for the Forum, explore themes and ideas for curriculum and programs, look at case studies, funding, etc. This tutorial/workshop will culminate in a report to CAPA and the College about how to establish this Forum.
