The Open Diplomacy Institute
Participatory think-tank for international affairs
The Open Diplomacy Institute is a Paris-based think-tank on international affairs. Since 2010, the Institute aims at involving non-diplomatic actors in the global policy conversation and explores all geopolitical trends shaping the life of future generations: balancing power of Europe with the rest of the world, accelerating the ecological transition, taking leadership of digital disruptions, regulation of the global economy and protecting fundamental rights. Therefore, in 2011, Open Diplomacy created the G20 and G8 outreach groups for youth, the Y20 and Y7. Since this milestone at the heart of the 2011 French presidency of the G20 and G8, the Institute has developed a powerful capacity of « participatory diplomacy » engaging a wide-audience to take part in the design and implementation of international policy. The Open Diplomacy Institute operates the network of the « Parliamentarians for Peace », a transnational group of MPs advocating for bolder political leadership to sustain multilateralism in international cooperation and to address emerging threats for peace.
« 2021 will be game-changing: as we make slow progress towards the end of the pandemic, gaining momentum to address the environmental chaos ahead is vital. Forests, as powerful nature-based solutions, are therefore our best ally »
Thomas Friang, Founder & CEO, The Open Diplomacy Institute
