Event: Commonwealth Diplomats Induction Programme

The annual Commonwealth Diplomats Induction Programme (CDIP) is a master class in the Commonwealth, organised for senior diplomats from member countries.

Over three days, participants learn about the Commonwealth as an international organisation and a unique system, network and platform for 54 member states, 86 organisations and 2.4 billion people.

The programme offers an exceptional opportunity to learn about the Commonwealth’s history, work and relationship with the rest of the world, through interactions with leading experts and prominent global figures.

It is also a chance to network, exchange views, develop friendships and learn about the Commonwealth way of caring and sharing in a multilateral setting.

The Commonwealth Secretariat leads in developing and running the event in collaboration with the Commonwealth Foundation and Commonwealth of Learning. More than 900 diplomats have benefited from the programme since its inception 36 years ago. 

Participation via government nomination only. For more information, contact: [email protected]
