The Diplomatic Council presents solutions for peace at the Geneva Peace Week
The Diplomatic Council (DC) was established as a Global Think Tank with the objective to serve as a bridge between diplomacy, economy and society combining all forces to encourage global relations, enhance international understanding, prevent and combat crime and promote peace and stability.
Our Geneva Peace Week Presentation focuses on:
Safer Internet for Children, Mitigation of Conflicts and Language and Communication for Peace
November, 7 from 9:15-10:30, Palais des Nations, Room IX
The “Diplomatic Council Safer Internet for Children” Initiative is a proud partner of the White IT project which was initiated by the German State of Lower Saxony and stands up for the prevention of sexualised violence against children and its representation in the digital world. WhiteIT is a unique worldwide alliance of over 70 different actors from politics, industry, law enforcement authorities, trade unions, associations, victim protection authorities, science and public administration.
White IT develops a strategy in order to combat sexual violence against children which consists of legal, preventive and technical actions as well as victim support and therapy for offenders.
The Diplomatic Council Peace Papers suggest options how conflicts can be mitigated if there is no way to solve them (e.g. Syria, North Korea, Kashmir, etc.). Key elements for conflict mitigation/diminution are 1. Emphasize legitimacy, 2. Take diplomatic measures, 3. Assist conciliations, arbitrations and mediations, 4. Maintain flexibility, 5. Keep issue and power proportional, 6. Seek common grounds, 7. Resist aggression, 8. Negotiate through dialogue and mutual cooperation, 9. Display commitment, 10. Avoid sensationalism
The Diplomatic Council Code of Trusted Communication includes significant guidelines for a trust-building communication in the public sphere proposing an ethical framework for the formation of public opinion, which is considered exemplary for the post-industrial and technologically advanced society.
Increasingly public opinion is no longer only shaped by media, parties or organisations but instead, and in particular, by social media channels, private persons or informal groups. However, these groups should be subject to the same standards with respect to responsibility, the truth, the right balance and as a sense of proportion as expected for official organis. Hence, this DC Code gives guidance on how to achieve this.

A thriving economy bringing prosperity to mankind is one of the best guarantors of peace. Based on this perception, the Diplomatic Council has translated its goal of promoting international understanding into an economic mandate. The global DC business network is linked to the diplomatic corps of the different nations.
The experts and leaders engaged in the Diplomatic Council play a key role in consulting the ambassadors on how the economic principles can be transferred into the global diplomatic network. Vice versa the ambassadors use their diplomatic competency to ensure that the economic activities ultimately promote understanding amongst nations and safeguard peace. Against this background, the Diplomatic Council welcomes personalities from diplomacy, economy and society who enjoy high degrees of acceptance, high levels of expertise and who pursue the same visions and values.
