Diplomats: When Symbols of Sovereignty Become Managers of Regime Change

The presentation seeks to reconstruct tensions and changes in diplomatic practice. The argument rests on an analysis of information gathering in Western embassies before, during, and after the eighteen days of the revolt that ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in 2011. This unravels what being a diplomat posted abroad actually consists of in practice and provides insights on the interactions between diplomats and non-state actors. This shows that diplomats’ social skills and analytic competence constantly require and support each other.

Light refreshments will be served.
