About Multilateral Diplomacy


Multilateral diplomacy is “the practice of involving more than two nations or parties in achieving diplomatic solutions to supranational problems” (Mahbubani 2013). It includes engagement with ad hoc groupings of countries and diplomacy through formal international organizations, such as the United Nations, NATO, and the Organization of American States.
