Globalization and its impact on international relations: The nation-states system which was inaugurated by the Peace of Westphalia belongs to the past.

Advances Has globalization transformed international politics information and communication technologies ICT are radically changing the speed of information and the way we relate.
The importance of Western civilization in the international realm is decreasing because of a shift of political and economic power to Asia which coincides with the current crisis in the European and American economies.
The revival of a more radical Islam at odds with moderate tendencies within and the economic crisis that is hitting those societies overshadows the hopes for transition to democracy. The increasing role of international organizations and the rise of multilateral diplomacy is another factor that is changing the physiognomy of diplomacy.
Nowadays, a diplomat must have a solid background and be a generalist, but at the same time he has to specialize. At European level, diplomats contribute to formulating Community policies while still defending the national interests of their states.
Is traditional diplomacy doomed to gradually disappear? Or is this an opportunity to strengthen its importance?
