Cultural diplomacy and the museums: the case of Greece and France
School of Economics, Business Administration and Legal Studies, MA in Art, Law and Economy
My dissertation was written as part of the MA in Art, Law and Economy at the International Hellenic University. The aim of my research is about
the importance of cultural
diplomacy between nations, how it has developed through time, and how cultural diplomacy is exercised today through the collaboration of museums. Museums play a
key role in the development of cultural diplomacy and the enhancement of intercultural dialogue and cultural exchanges. I will also examine the role of the international
organizations and their interest in cultural diplomacy, with an aim to achieve the optimal cooperation between states, through measures to protect cultural heritage.
My research is also about the collaboration of two countries with deep historical and
cultural ties, Greece and France, and how cultural diplomacy is exercised as best practice through the collaboration of their museums.
