The Global Diplomatic Forum

The Global Diplomatic Forum (GDF), a non-governmental - not for profit organisation aiming at contributing to global peace and prosperity through pioneering global programmes.

The GDF is expanding access to expertise and knowledge in the field of international affairs and diplomacy and is enhancing international friendships and co-operation, which will lead to a broader understanding and cooperation between communities and nations. 

With successful programmes launched in London, the GDF has expanded its global footprint through programmes in Turkey, Mexico, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, and Morocco.

The GDF reach expands from senior international affairs professionals to Young Professionals.

From 2012 to 2016, the GDF has organised 65 round tables, conferences and workshops, attended by over 10,000 delegates from over 160 countries and speakers from over 60 countries and participation from over 260 organisations. 



For many years we have been approached by the international affairs stakeholders regarding the need for a platform whereby prospects, recruiters and educational institutions from across the globe can promote their institutions to those individuals seeking to enter the field of international affairs and diplomacy.

A platform that provides a one stop shop for young and aspiring international affairs professionals to find comprehensive information on courses and career paths in International Relations offered by institutions from all over the world.
