Diplomacy - Research Guide International Law

La diplomatie peut être considérée comme une application de l’intelligence et du tact dans la conduite des relations entre les gouvernements d’États indépendants. Bien que les termes diplomatie et politique étrangère soient souvent utilisés de manière identique, la diplomatie est un instrument de politique étrangère. La politique étrangère vise à définir des objectifs, parfois avec l’indication des stratégies et tactiques à utiliser. La diplomatie est utilisée pour la réalisation de ces objectifs. L’objet de la diplomatie est de renforcer l’État et d’aider aux relations avec les autres.

Tsar Nicholas II: Peace and International Jurisdiction

The initiative of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia to organize an international peace conference at the dawn of the twentieth century came at exactly the right moment. During the First Hague Peace Conference of 1899, 26 countries came together to speak about disarmament and about the possibility of international jurisdiction, which led to the establishment of the Permanent Court of Arbitration. In 1907 a second peace conference was organized in The Hague, in which 44 countries participated. Find out more about the Tsar’s initiative and his relationship with the Peace Palace.

Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919)

Andrew Carnegie’s quest for peace led to the founding of a wide range of funds and trusts. Shortly after the 1899 Hague Peace Conference had ended, William T. Stead, a British journalist and pacifist, and Andrew D. White, an American diplomat, convinced the Scottish-born American steel magnate and philanthropist to finance the ‘Temple for Peace’ that was to become the Peace Palace in The Hague. We have created a Library special on Andrew Carnegie in order to provide you easy access to our collection.
