Episode #16 | Digital Diplomacy and the International Criminal Court
The Hague Diplomacy Podcast aims at bringing the themes of the journal's research off the page, and onto the discussion table. Each episode will feature a guest who will share their insights and personal experience within their practice of or research on diplomacy. Available via SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts and Spotify!
In the first episode of 2023, our host Simran Kataria sits down with David Eichert to discuss his paper titled “Hashtagging Justice: Digital Diplomacy and the International Criminal Court on Twitter,” which was published in The Hague Journal of Diplomacy. They go a bit beyond the state-centric understanding of digital diplomacy to understand how the International Criminal Court (ICC) uses Twitter and its overall diplomatic messaging. They dig deeper into the different types of tweets on the ICC’s Twitter and discuss the guests’ categorization of these tweets into eleven distinct categories. They touch briefly upon three key narratives that emerge from the tweets as well as the key audiences among other topics.
