Data Diplomacy

Updating diplomacy to the big data era

This report aims to increase the awareness of the opportunities, limitations, and challenges of the big data trend, and to understand how MFAs could adapt their work, procedures, and organisational structures to the big data era. In this report, we provide a broad overview of the main opportunities of big data in different diplomatic fields and functions, and highlight the key issues that need to be addressed for big data diplomacy to flourish. This framework of possibilities and constraints opens up a diversity of applications and implications that can be explored in further detail, and is meant to inform MFAs that are exploring big data to adapt diplomatic practice to the datadriven era where possible and feasible.
