“SamDiP”is the intellectual and practical competition in which participants identify breaches of protocol procedures and propose possible solutions. They also should present the results of their research in the form of TED-talks project describing the peculiarities of diplomatic protocol in the chosen region.

The Olympiad is organized on annual basis by the Primakov Centre and the Representative Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation in Samara.

The Olympiad gives participants and attendees the opportunity not only to study non-standard breaches of national protocol, but also to take a fresh look at the cases they already know. The individuality, serious preparation, ability to interact with the audience, non-trivial presentation of the material – these are all the qualities and skills that help participants to impress not only the audience, but also the panel of judges.

According to the results of the Olympiad participants gain theoretical knowledge, form practical skills and abilities necessary for effective international contacts, conducting official and business events, as well as improving the general protocol culture.

We invite school and university students from Samara region to take part in “SamDiP”. A charge of positive emotions and new friends are certainly guaranteed!
