The Evolution of Diplomacy

Our tour will explore the history that has played such an important role in shaping contemporary European and international politics. Across nine countries, we’ll chart the political movements that have empowered or repressed populations around the globe, and visit the sites of revolution and war. We’ll also take an in depth look at some of the most important ideas and forces shaping today’s international community – including the role of the UN, the rise of radical politics throughout Europe, and Russia’s reignited confrontation with the Western world.

Tour Highlights

  • Berlin:
    Presently a melting pot of differing cultures and the heart of democracy, Berlin provides an insight into every step along the evolution of diplomacy, making it the perfect city with which to start our tour. From empires ruling in centuries gone by, to the experiments of Nazism and Communism, Berlin is a historically rich city that will immerse us in the past and future of diplomacy.
  • Paris:
    Known for its picturesque landmarks, rich artistic history and copious amounts of cheese, Paris is also the centre of some of the most influential and defining moments of modern history. The French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars are known to have planted the seeds of democracy and human rights throughout the continent.

    These two eye opening, beautiful cities will provide opportunities for us to consult with the key institutions that continue to shape contemporary Europe. Here, we will visit the United Nations, the European Union, the International Country of Justice, and NATO.
