The Budapest Academy of City Diplomacy

The Academy’s mission is to build a cadre of value-driven young urban diplomats who can constructively engage in the big debates shaping the future and build a high-resolution picture of what is happening around us. I am confident that the Academy will continue its activities for a long time after its successful first year.

Gergely Karácsony, Mayor of Budapest

With the support of the City Diplomacy Academy, Budapest can utilise its place and role in international cooperation more strongly and effectively. The Academy will provide the next generation of city diplomats, introducing university students and recent graduates to the world of international administration and city diplomacy.

János Kendernay, Senior Advisor to the Mayor on City Diplomacy

What makes a good school? Attractive and marketable educational content, excellent lecturers and hard-working, motivated students – we already had all this in the first year, 2020-2021 of the Budapest City Diplomacy Academy. Building on these foundations, we will continue our work together in the framework of the accredited adult education programme, exploring the specific tasks and tools of city diplomacy together with the students, while familiarizing them with the diverse world of inter-state relations.
