Abstract

If we want cultural diplomacy to succeed we should keep in mind the words addressed by Ambassador Alan Baker: “In order for cultural diplomacy to succeed, practically, it needs to include, first and foremost, an acknowledgment by political and religious leaders that peace, justice, and mutual respect are basic values in all religions, as well as central assumptions in international law and diplomacy”.

Each culture brings about its impact upon the whole world and if we want the world to be a space of peace we should share Michelle LeBaron’s view: every culture is like the member of an orchestra; an individual player, but together they make great music, so culture could make a great world.

This paper is to be considered as the beginning of a research of the importance of culture and of cultural diplomacy against the background of the changes in the international relations sphere and the long-lasting problems in the conflict areas.

Keywords: cultural diplomacy, international relations, peace, conflict areas
