We are pleased to inform you that ILPS is opening registrations for the Ist edition of the ILPS, NLUO Diplomatic Policy Drafting Competition. We hereby invite submissions for the same.
About the Competition
In the arena of international relations and diplomacy, the key to resolving disputes is to formulate a firm and decisive diplomatic policy around which the course of action of a nation shall revolve. The world in the 21st century has witnessed a transitional shift from a complicated world order to complex world order. The complicated world order can be correlated to a game of chess that is quite intricate with infinite possibilities but it has set rules for the pieces to move. On the contrary, a complex world order can be correlated to a game of snooker where even a maestro may not be able to play the same shot again to achieve the same desired result. In this complex world order, countries bank on a fixed structured diplomatic policy to manage international relations but the said policy may not yield the same result every time. Therefore, in such a complex world there is always room for fresh and dynamic perspectives. To kindle this approach of having a dynamic perspective on international issues among the research scholars, professionals, and students, the International Law and Policy Society at NLUO brings forth the 1st edition of the Diplomatic Policy drafting competition.
