Welcome to Training for International Diplomats!

Since 1992 the Federal Foreign Office has been offering young diplomats from all over the world the chance to improve their professional skills under the motto "Diplomacy by Networking". While initially providing support for the rebuilding of young democracies in Central and Eastern Europe, the international programmes of the Federal Foreign Office have since then continued to expand with growing success. By now, the Federal Foreign Office's Foreign Service Academy brings together young diplomats from around the world in Berlin. The aim of this training initiative is to perceive foreign policy as an opportunity for cooperation and as a basis upon which to build the foundation for a working partnership on global matters. This investment not only helps secure future dialogue, peace and human rights, but also lays the foundation for a worldwide network.
