The diplomat of this century is a multidisciplinary actor in a globalized world. In this century, the activity and the profile of diplomatic tasks have been radically transformed due to the need to continue the fast pace of the current times. The diplomat is an expert in public relations, a good talker and negotiator. It is a profession surrounded by a certain romanticism based on popular thinkings considering the diplomat as a kind of spy. This is a legend created by the ideas that the diplomat only served to attend to cocktail receptions and pompous acts. Revising history, diplomacy began with simple meetings between emissaries to discuss “next steps” between tribes, states and empires. Today, the diplomacy is no longer so simple. It has evolved in complex matters that states face in the global world. The “New Diplomacy” deals with topics as diverse as human rights, environment, corruption, technology, terrorism, trade, globalization, added to the recurrent crises and the permanent dispute and wars between nations and businesses which raise the emergence of new actors with international weight in the area of diplomacy. Today the diplomat acts in the field of foreign policy, dealing with the rational behavior, and associated with the achievement of national interests, in such a way that the criterion of judgment to establish if an International policy decision is rational or not, is generally based on establishing whether it is raised with the purpose to promote national goals and reasonable risks. In today’s globalized world, it is... [-]
