Daryl Copeland, Senior Fellow at the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute, has been for more than 30 years in the forefront of the challenges of international relations. He served as a Canadian diplomat with postings in Thailand, Ethiopia, New Zealand and Malaysia. In 2000, he received the Canadian Foreign Service Officer Award for his “tireless dedication and unyielding commitment to advancing the interests of the diplomatic profession.”
His book, Guerrilla Diplomacy: Rethinking International Relations, argues that diplomacy, rather than defense, must occupy a central place and ‘guerrilla diplomacy’ can restore the relevance and effectiveness of the world’s diplomacy strategies.
