I’ve spoken before about foreign policy and the internet. We’re still only beginning to explore the impact it will have – on states, and on individuals. But the debate is definitely starting. This piece by Misha Glenny in the Financial Times gives an interesting view on the different ways online developments are being viewed by policy makers.
For the FCO, it’s something we’ve been engaged on for a while. This think-piece by Shane Dillon on Stephen Hale’s Digital Diplomacy blog gives an insight into some of the areas we need to consider. Ultimately, the internet is already changing the way we conduct diplomacy – in my opinion for the better. It can increase openness and empower individuals. But things happen fast in cyberspace – we need to keep working hard to make sure we stay ahead of the curve.
