The Académie des Métiers de la Diplomatie was born out of the desire to ensure the continuity and to continue the development and the influence of the training program of the International Diplomatic Academy since the cessation of its activities in 2018. As a result, it draws on forty years of experience in diplomacy and international affairs training, to offer each of the professionals in these fields the opportunity to strengthen their specific capacities, knowledge and know-how.

Our training offer, delivered in person and online, is available in the form of intensive or extensive cycles. It covers all aspects of international relations in their diplomatic, political, economic and strategic aspects.
