The student forum for international affairs at the University of Exeter.

About Us

Founded in 2015, the Diplomatic Hub is a student-led project that provides an interdisciplinary forum for those interested in global politics and diplomacy. Throughout the academic year we organize events with academics, diplomats, and other professionals working in the field of international affairs. We have also run crisis simulation workshops and field trips. Through these events we hope to engage students beyond their academic programme, provide valuable career advice, and shine a light on the complex world of diplomacy. We are an affliated Exeter Students’ Guild society.

Events

Workshops, talks, interviews, and webinars.

With it being the new academic year, the new Diplomatic Hub committee are proud to announce our events for 2021/22!

Come join us for our Pub Quiz in the forum (America Room)! We will be quizzing on international apolitical topics and issues (past and current) from around the world. There are prizes to be won and friends to be made, so come to our first social event of the year!

We were delighted to be joined by Lord Robin Teverson, Dr Ricardo Safra de Campos and Dr Travis Coan on November 2nd to discuss COP26 and wider themes of climate diplomacy. 

Whilst all panellists stressed the importance of decisive climate action, it was interesting to hear the different perspective they each brought. Lord Teverson provided an insight into numerous policy initiatives and management strategies; Dr Safra de Campos elaborated on his research on climate change and migration in developing countries, and Dr Coan talked us through the contributions of climate change scepticism and environmental intelligence to the formulation of environmental policy. 

It was brilliant to see how engaged the audience were with the discussion. Much of the audience Q&A focused on the actionable steps young people can take to influence environmental policy, and audience members and panellists exchanged ideas with each other on this theme. 

We would like to thank the three panellists for sharing their time and contributions.

Looking to start a career in diplomacy? Come join us on the 16 November at 6:30pm to hear from Katy Reid (virtually) to discuss her career in diplomacy so far! As the current Director of Communications at the British Embassy in Madrid, she has a wealth of experience, spending time in the FCDO and Parliament, so this is a must for any budding diplomats!

We have been invited to join the Dojoko Diplomacy Student Conference on 20 November 2021, 9am and 4pm GMT! This will offer us a chance to network with other students and hear from diplomats and employability experts!
