Chapter Summary

Multi-stakeholder approaches, whether in the form of public private partnerships or multi-stakeholder partnerships in the multilateral and regional context, are becoming increasingly relevant in international affairs. At the same time, the theory of multi-track diplomacy appears to offer useful insights for human rights diplomacy although it has been largely developed as a new approach to ensure peace and security. This chapter focuses on the relevance of these two approaches to public diplomacy for various forms of human rights diplomacy. Where traditional diplomacy is conceived by diplomatic officials and conducted top-down, multi-track diplomacy argues for a bottom-up approach that first searches to identify the human needs of the population to be targeted by a diplomatic measure. The approach of multi-track diplomacy is daily practice within the United Nations (UN). The human rights diplomacy of the European Union (EU) often uses academic expertise and NGOs in pursuing EU human rights policies.
