Join Columbia in Paris professor Lorenzo Kihlgren Grandi as he celebrates the release of his new book. City Diplomacy presents an accessible overview of the seven key concepts of city diplomacy: development cooperation, peacekeeping, economy, innovation, environment, culture, and migration. Combining theory with practical evidence, this book discusses its scope and challenges, maps the actors involved along with their interaction and offers suggestions for available tools. For this virtual book launch, Professor Kihlgren Grandi will be joined by Christian Lequesne to discuss the multifaceted international action of cities.
