Emirates Diplomatic Academy and Georgetown University Collaborate on Arabic Translation of Diplomatic Case Study

Emirates Diplomatic Academy (EDA), the UAE’s leading international relations and diplomacy educational and research institution, has for the first time collaborated with Georgetown University’s Institute for the Study of Diplomacy (ISD) to translate one of their most recent case studies, Crisis in Dominion, into Arabic.

Crisis in Dominion describes a fictional international, political-military crisis in which the participants are exposed to different elements of crisis management and acquire the crucial skills of information assessment, analysis, negotiation and decision-making.

The ISD has a world-renowned library of nearly 250 case studies in diplomacy that serve as a unique and useful educational tool for aspiring diplomats. Crisis in Dominion is the first of ISD’s case studies to be translated into Arabic.

His Excellency Bernardino Leon, President of EDA, said: “Case studies serve as a helpful tool in practical learning. We at EDA are delighted to have partnered on this milestone project for the benefit of Arabic-speaking students and practitioners. We are confident that aspiring diplomats worldwide, as well as our own students at EDA will find immense value in this case study for the improvement of their diplomatic skills.

“We look forward to forging a long and fruitful relationship with Georgetown University in our aim to help diplomatic professionals to develop their capabilities and make sure they best represent their country abroad.”

Leon added that EDA’s collaboration with Georgetown University validates its ongoing efforts to support the UAE’s foreign relations and raise the international profile of the Academy in enhancing the learning experience of students.
The translation of the nearly 50-page case study can be accessed on the ISD website (https://casestudies.isd.georgetown.edu/products/student-version-333).
