Track2Asia intends to investigate possible approaches diverging from the ’tit for tat’ diplomacy, and aims at developing a soft diplomatic channel –Track II- that Europe lacks in some parts of East Asia as complement and supplement to traditional Track I Diplomacy. Its activities combine and go beyond the academic research and conference exchanges carried on by a Think Tank, and beyond the fieldwork and practical policy led by an NGO. It aims to function as a bridge between people, places and ideas. Acting to unite different countries, type of actors and organisations, Track2Asia believes the medium is not the message. Its Mission is to carry the message more than to shine as the carrier.
