SECOND TRACK DIPLOMACY
Tier Two/"Second Track" diplomacy has developed in response to the profound challenge that many complex conflicts present to those working to build a sustainable and just peace. In broad terms, Second Track diplomacy brings together professional/opinion leaders or other influential individuals from communities in conflict, without official representative status, to work towards a better understanding of the underlying dynamics of the conflict and how to promote its transformation from violence (or potential violence) to a collaborative process of peace-building and sustainable development. Second Track diplomacy complements official or "First Track" diplomacy, opening up opportunities for communication, cross-cultural understanding and joint efforts to explore how the needs of the parties might be addressed when official dialogue is blocked or constrained.
The use of social media is critical when building support, drawing attention to, or making connections to further a case. Web sites, Facebook, Twitter, and online petitions all combine to strengthen a case when used in the correct manner. GAC will ensure that these platforms are used properly, on-time and to your best advantage.
