 Developed by EDA in close collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the programme aims to enhance the skills and knowledge of newly appointed UAE ambassadors and support them in their efforts to achieve the country’s foreign policy goals and aspirations. Its core themes include political analysis, international law, media handling, and diplomatic protocol and etiquette.

 Commenting on the occasion, Bernardino León, Director General of EDA, said: “We are proud to have mentored such a talented cohort of diplomats and I am confident they will go on to become outstanding ambassadors for the UAE. These diplomats play a vital role in building, cementing, and enhancing our relations with the countries in which they will be based.”

He added: “In today’s increasingly challenging international arena, diplomacy requires new thinking and mindsets. With a curriculum that has been carefully tailored to reflect the ever-changing geopolitical realities we deal with every day, the programme equips our diplomats with the ambassadorial intelligence they need to navigate the 21st-century diplomatic landscape.”
