  • Professor Stephen Burman

    The world is changing rapidly and government is reaching out to build stronger relationships with emerging powers as well as longstanding allies. Increasingly, diplomacy is about understanding and making contact with other peoples and cultures and not just government to government relations. If we are to maintain our influence in the world we need to understand the world around us and our place within it. The Translating Cultures theme will provide us with research into precisely these questions and the fCo is delighted to be supporting the theme as it develops and grows.
