International Young Diplomats School

The Institute of Peace and Diplomatic Studies (IPDS) launched the International Young Diplomats School (IYDS) as a ground-breaking program to highlight the value of diplomacy in the rapidly evolving, globally connected world.

It is the 5th International Diplomats School, where participants are given opportunities to interact with Ambassadors of different Embassies.

IPDS has organized the Fifth Edition of the IYDS from 13-16 February 2024 in Islamabad. The participants are young professionals with diverse backgrounds, students, and faculty members across Pakistan.

During the School, the participants will be meeting hosted by Ambassadors of different countries at their offices. You can see details about the program here, especially our earlier cohorts. You can also see our profile here.

IYDS is based on the model of the Public Diplomacy approach for offering an opportunity for Diplomatic Missions to meet diverse groups of professionals and young people from across Pakistan having various ethnic, religious, linguistic, and regional backgrounds.

Hence, they offer diplomatic missions to increase their outreach and interaction with young people from across Pakistan.

On the other hand, IYDS offers young people the opportunity to meet ambassadors and diplomats to learn more about countries and build stronger relationships while returning to their communities.

The group of 16-20 participants, ages 18-40, having diverse academic and professional backgrounds from different regions of Pakistan, joined to be part of the program.

The program includes visits to diplomatic missions in Islamabad and information sessions with Ambassadors, Diplomats, and other Embassy staff.

Ambassadors and Diplomats will share insights about their missions, countries, and opportunities for education, development, and trade with the participants.
