‘Quam fluctus diversi, quam mare conjuncti – though the waves are many, the sea is one.’
This website contains an evolving bank of legal materials, on-line library resources, news, articles, and blogs, about the inter-related subjects of:
(i) Diplomatic Law; and
(ii) Transforming Geo-Political Conflict Through Mediation.
This website also contains a page for making donations directly to UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) and the UNHCR (United Nations Refugee Agency).
The website went live in June 2014, and was listed (with my permission) on the website of the United States ‘American Foreign Service Association’ (the ‘AFSA’) based in Washington DC underneath the heading ‘Codes of Conduct from Other Services/Countries’ (http://www.afsa.org/ethics).
According to Google Analytics, in under 10 weeks the website grew from a zero readership to a weekly audience spread across Canada, the USA, South America, the Caribbean, the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Ukraine, the Russian Federation, North Africa, the Gulf states, Pakistan, India, China, South East Asia, and Australasia.
