After reviewing the literature on diplomacy and placing this within the context of globalisation, this paper suggests that traditional forms of diplomacy are not in decline but are undergoing a process of transformation involving the propagation of new mechanisms, processes and norms. This transformation is being led not only by states but also by multilateral institutions, non-governmental organisations, firms and other representatives of civil society. This theme is pursued through a case study of the evolving relationship between the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the United Nations, which examines the nature and evolution of the ICC as an international actor before moving to a discussion of the Global Compact launched in July 2000.
