Some 150 participants will attend the virtual conference, including representatives of 28 foreign ministries, social media companies, academic researchers and international organizations engaged in digital diplomacy.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will host a two-day virtual conference on the topic of digital diplomacy during the corona crisis. The conference, organized by the MFA’s Digital Diplomacy Department, will be attended by some 150 participants. These include representatives of 28 foreign ministries from around the world, leading academic researchers, Twitter representatives and other international organizations engaged in digital diplomacy.

Representatives of the Israel MFA presented the ministry’s activities on social media during the corona crisis, with emphasis both on the consular aspects of repatriating Israeli citizens and efforts to arrange shipment of essential medical equipment. The Twitter representative described the company’s struggle against the online hate discourse, including that taking place on the backdrop of the corona crisis.

The conference also addresses cyber issues and features actions of the foreign ministries of the U.S., India, Belgium, and Lithuania.

The Israel MFA is annually rated amongst a selected group of foreign ministries leading the digital field. The MFA’s Digital Diplomacy Department operates the largest array of official media in the country, and is active on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram and YouTube. The array includes over 800 social media accounts in 50 languages, reaching over 100 million people every month.
