Foreign and security policy, like all other sectors, has firmly entered the digital age. Technology is increasingly affecting geopolitics, human rights, security policy and global development with new opportunities as well as risks emerging. As a reaction, the rise of technological diplomacy (TechPlomacy) acknowledges the key role that data- driven innovation and tech giants play in today’s society. It is about reshaping the way we think and do diplomacy in the 21th century by creating new avenues for dialogue and collaboration between tech industry, government and civil society. Alliances where size and influence are matched by equal levels of responsibility and joint action.
