The Hague Digital Diplomacy Camp


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands is organized The Hague Digital Diplomacy Camp: Influence in a diffuse digital world on 2 February 2018. At this unconference, we invited participants to discuss consequences of digitalization for international affairs, to share practical tools and design solutions for the future.

We asked participants from government, tech and civil society what new insights they gained at the unconference and how we can be influential in a diffuse digital world.

Rank Your Embassy


Hoe kan het dat we als overheid een circulaire economie en recycling ondersteunen, maar nog lang niet overal in de organisatie zelf goed afval scheiden? Het project ‘Rank your Embassy – Mission Sustainable’ biedt een platform aan collega’s op Nederlandse ambassades om inspirerende initiatieven te delen en toe te passen. Vandaag dagen wij collega’s op R8 uit om thuis of op het werk te doen waar zij voor staan. Ga jij je gloeilampen vervangen, checken hoe groen jouw stroom is, of een week geen vlees eten in de lunchpauzes? Deel jouw duurzaamheidstips op Twitter via #MissionSustainable (optioneel: #DvdD2017, @MinBZ, @Min_IenM)!

Kunduz


Door de rechtstreekse steun van Nederland kregen meer dan 2.100 mensen toegang tot het rechtssysteem. Meer dan 1.170 vrouwen kregen hun zaken beoordeeld door lokale Huquqs in Noord-Afghanistan. Daarnaast ondersteunt Nederland verschillende projecten, die de capaciteit van de Afghaanse regering vergroten om zo de veiligheid en rechtsspraak voor burgers te waarborgen. Tijdens een van de bezoeken aan Kunduz is de Nederlandse ambassade in de gelegenheid geweest om de vooruitgang van de rechtsstaat in Noord-Afghanistan te bespreken.
