International Dialogues

IGCC has provided ongoing leadership for preventive diplomacy and dialogue in the world’s most troubled regions through its Track II programs. Track II, or unofficial diplomacy, offers a venue for officials and academics to express their views and enhance mutual understanding in an informal atmosphere. Officials participate in their personal capacity, not as representatives for their governments, and all discussions are kept off the record. These rules permit brainstorming and frank discussion of divergent views. The mixture of government officials and scholars contributes to the free-wheeling style of discussion.
