Cyber diplomacy is becoming an important tool for promoting national interests and realizing foreign policy goals. However, cyberspace is a complex and dynamic environment that is constantly changing. This makes cyber diplomacy a complex task that requires special knowledge and skills. For the successful development of cyber diplomacy in Ukraine, qualified personnel with knowledge in the field of international relations, information technologies, cyber security, cyber defense and other related fields are needed, and therefore it is necessary to urgently form and rapidly develop the direction of science and education in this field.


As a leading state educational and scientific institution of postgraduate education, which provides training, retraining and professional training of employees of the diplomatic service and specialists of other state institutions for work in the field of international relations, the Diplomatic Academy is the initiator of the creation of a number of training programs on cyber diplomacy in higher educational institutions, as well as new directions of scientific research in this area. These studies help to better understand this area and develop more effective policies and strategies. In addition, it is necessary to start thorough systematic cooperation with other countries within the framework of cyber diplomacy programs. All this will help Ukraine become a more influential player in cyberspace and protect its national interests.
