Finding solutions to complex societal problems within the context of new global realities requires a different set of skills than those traditionally applied by career diplomats or professional consultants. The distinguishing competencies of education diplomacy, as practiced by education diplomats, consist of the quality and level of technical expertise and understanding of education policy and human rights, and, when practiced on the international level, the ability to build relationships and further education agendas within the global education arena. The importance of education as a bridge for promoting peace, global security, and sustainable solutions to complex human problems is a core concept of education diplomacy.
