Former Dutch Ambassador to Sri Lanka Leoni Cuelenaere trained five Sri Lankan research organizations on relationship-building with international stakeholders and navigating challenging political environments. The ambassador provided practical guidance on how organizations can most effectively communicate and collaborate with the diplomatic community in Sri Lanka, including the need to be proactive (such as inviting diplomats to roundtables, briefings, and other informational events rather than simply sending them reports).
