A Global Community?
From high-level formal diplomacy to people-to-people diplomacy
early efforts: John F. Kennedy's Peace Corps (founded 1961)
contrast this to digitally-enabled people-to-people interactions today
the model for today's people-to-people global intereactions is peer-to-peer sharing
Hillary Clinton's Statecraft in the 21st Century
claims that technology and innovation have changed the conditions for it
Clinton principles for statecraft today:
human right of free speech within the ditial world
open markets fo digital goods and services
freedom to connect -- ensuring access for all
Key to promoting all of this is the civil sector
Intl NGOS are essential building blocks of the global community
they pre-date digital infrastrcuture, although they use it today
Along with global media, they contribute to global consciousness
extend affactive attachment beyond national attachments
these NGOS claim to be apolitical -- do not work for any state
but in some cases, willing to defy the auhthority of many states
cyber-realists vs. cyber optimists
