Since #TheDiplomat was released on @netflix, I have been asked many questions on the differences between the show and the reality of a diplomat's life. Here are a few things that made me react, agree or laugh 👇🧵

1/7 To my female colleagues: Who gets to chose between 10 different dresses that are lent to you for a cocktail?!
2/7 Last minute ministerial visits happen, but they are usually months in the making, so no diplomat would never, ever forget that a minister arrives in 20 minutes. No way!

The notion that Scott Morrison, a man who doesn't read books - with the cultural and emotional depth of a televangelist in a mud puddle - should represent us overseas on topics like 'Australia-China relations' is profoundly disturbing.

Here's Scott insulting the leader of one of Australia's largest trading partners.

Let's not even start on his inept efforts with Europe.…

Pérez de Cuéllar and Rafeeuddin Ahmed: two UN diplomats amongst many international players, who worked on the Cambodia peace process for a decade in the distant 1980s. They toiled on different diplomatic formulas, including one that culminated in success in Paris in 1991. A 🧵
In writing my paper: "When Great Powers Behave: Mediation Lessons from the Cambodia Peace Process" - thanks @hdcentre + @nupinytt - I wanted to examine a complex, multi-actor and -phased peace process, grounded in some form of the practice of applied history.
Most of all I wanted to look at it from today's vantage point. The soi-disant Cold War (never cold for many but regulated perhaps) is over. The post-Cold War era of ambition, hubris and intervention is also over. We have today a frightening mix of the previous two eras and more.

"... it points to an important lesson for the United States as it vies with #China for influence across the Pacific: you have got to show up. And the United States has not."… #SolomonIslands #diplomacy
1/ "We get it. The #SolomonIslands is small, remote and economically insignificant. But if all countries like us are dismissed as such, China will pick us off one by one with its promises of business projects and development aid."
2/ "There is a creeping sense today that we are being ignored, if not forgotten. So who can blame us if we open the door to new friends who can help with our needs?

And those needs are great."

My new article just out @ForeignAffairs argues that the #US and #China are not directly competing for #SoftPower. Instead, what we are witnessing is #coexistence of their distinct approaches and practices.… 1/10
First, I contrast the more ideational or ideological #SoftPower conception and practice by the #US with the more #pragmatic approach of #China. The #US emphasizes liberal values, whereas #China stresses material welfare and mutual development as part of its vision. 2/10
The #US public diplomacy celebrates and promotes idealized vision of #American democracy. #China promotes its economic accomplishments and fuses practical benefits with cultural programming. This distinction is especially notable in the #GlobalSouth. 3/10

Being a superpower isn’t just economical or military.
It’s a brand.
And a brand that should sell.
And history has shown that all great powers were brands that sold. And the humans of earth bought with their heaters and minds.
#superpower #world
Quite simply, now, #Russia and #China haven’t made themselves institute strong brands
The #Chinese are lately realising this. The #Russians no
They won’t
Not how they work and think
Being super BRAND power means humans of Earth wanting to be like the citizens of a superpower.
Being a super #BRAND power means your educational institutions, #lifestyle, #habitus, #culture, #language, #food, #traditions EVERYTHING is presented as the best on the planet.
And it usually is.
In the superpower game, 💩 sells some of the time. Not all.

Anyone seen this on major news-channels - not at all in line with #masshysteria engineered by the global #deepstate? BIG kudos to @luigidimaio and Mario #Draghi @Palazzo_Chigi for coming up with this plan to end #UkraineRussiaWar - throwing down a gauntlet to the #deepstate. ...
... and they will have to craft an "alliance of the sane", so started with @antonioguterres and canvassing #G7 - knowing that a lot of "allied sanity" is needed against the war-mongers in #Ukraine, here @Podolyak_M speaking for the #deepstate ...…
... and, finally, to give deserved credit: My attention was drawn to this initiative by this interesting interview on status of negotiations in @truthout, quite interesting otherwise, too - though nothing really new.…

@ggreenwald Yesterday, I could listen to @OksanaBoyko_RT's 2014 interview on #YouTube with former Australian PM #MalcolmFraser. Today, I can't. His sagacity and courage are sorely needed.#censored #NATO #insiders #LNL #RNBreakfast #mediawatch #abc730 #4corners @phbarratt
@OksanaBoyko_RT @phbarratt In 2015, a year after the coup in Kiev, Tom Switzer, from @RadioNational's #BetweenTheLines, wrote about Malcolm Fraser's views on #NATO, the #US, Russia, Ukraine, Crimea.
Wise observations, still.
@CISOZ @LowyInstitute @RodgerShanahan…
@OksanaBoyko_RT @phbarratt @RadioNational @CISOZ @LowyInstitute @RodgerShanahan Last week, anticipating #Youtube would censor RT, which would mean @OksanaBoyko_RT's #WorldsApartRT interview would be unavailable, I transcribed it.

Until the full interview is once again available, I'll tweet some of what the former prime minister said.

Quel symbole cette première rencontre entre les ministres des affaires étrangères Russe et Ukrainien en Turquie à Antalya sous la médiation Turque pendant le sommet annuel international de la diplomatie.Voilà qui fera fermer la bouche des théoriciens du «clash des civilisations».
Antalya est une ville symbole : C’est la région d’origine du ministre Turc des affaires étrangères qu’il a administrée, c’est la ville où le nombre de touristes et d’expatriés russes et ukrainiens sont les + nombreux. C’est aussi la ville de la diplomatie avec son sommet annuel.
Les ministres des affaires étrangères Turc et russe Mevlut Çavusoglù et Sergueï Lavrov se connaissent très bien et se respectent. Ils ont déjà négocié plusieurs dossiers de cessez-le-feu en Syrie, en Libye et en Azerbaïdjan.

My grandmother Luisa was born in January 1922.
Some years before, Italy 🇮🇹 got out of the Great War, which ended with the Versaille Treaty that made the world a worse place. Italy was among the "winners" but came out distressed. Fascism was born in that context.
My grandmother was a witness to the Second World War. She went to high school when several professors were at the front. Two girls from a bigger city were displaced in her house and became family (I called them aunties when I was a child).
Food rationing was one of her memories.
I was fortunate enough to grow in a peaceful Europe that tried to build bridges (see Euro's banknotes) and peace. But I didn't forget my grandmother's memories, and I believed I would have found it difficult to explain to my son what war in Europe could look like.

1/8: #Ukraine thread. What does #Putin want? 1. Recast the post Cold War security structure of Europe, which he believes shames #Russia. 2. Integrate Ukraine into Russia. 3. Divide #NATO and weaken America..
2/8: 4. Entrench #Russian control in its near abroad, if necessary through force - as in Georgia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Crimea. 5. Buttress his domestic position, not with public opinion but in the political /military establishment.
3/8: On timing #Putin sees this as a moment of Western weakness & distraction. #US divided at home & damaged by Afghanistan. European unity weakened by #Brexit and differences in #EU. New SPD-led German coalition. #Macron facing re-election. UK government caught in scandal.

Lovely! I suggest extending to all national diplomats in other ministries of foreign affairs of EU MS! There is no more important foreign policy issue for us to debate in EU than the proper scope of our various national interests. #EEAS/#CFSP not occur in a vacuum.@SanninoEU 1/1
It has to take account of what other #Ministries are doing now & consider inevitable intertie. Even more, it will be good to launch #Erasmus for #diplomacy...setting up basis for a true #EU foreign policy! After all #EU has so many diplomatic cultures @TimmermansEU @josepborrell

An interesting article indeed. I was once political director at a Ministry of Foreign Affairs (I resigned since my 3 y old child was in Brussels, and could not commute btw 2 capitals). Here is my view, maybe a different approach: 1. #Diplomacy is about relations among states!1/1
2. I do not think that government is the diplomat’s principal occupation. A diplomat shall go beyond states and governments and for this, he/she needs extensive expertise. 1/2
3. It takes decades to acquire, and after is a battlefield… because of inertia or democratic variations. Crafting diplomatic relationship is a very difficult task challenging task, it is about civilizational and strategic convergence. 1/3 End

2| What caught my eye in this @guardian article was the quote:

“In Israel there is a strong political movement to make #diplomacy through #business. Business first, diplomacy later. When you make a deal together, it opens a lot of doors to diplomacy.”
3| The notion that #profits trump #consent is rather disturbing, but perfectly in line with the product- #spyware.
