Corps Diplomatique

Corps Diplomatique is a 5-part documentary series for Canvas (VRT). It is a unique view behind the scenes of a generally hermetically sealed biotope. The viewer follows the activities of Belgian diplomats worldwide on a fly-on-the-wall basis. For example, now that Belgium is a member of the UN Security Council and our diplomats will be sitting at the table with the world's great powers. In addition to the groundbreaking look at diplomacy today, we delve into history with revealing statements and juicy anecdotes from (former) diplomats and top politicians, illustrated with excerpts from the VRT archive. The mini-reconstructions of events in which Belgian diplomacy played an important role, place historical news events in a new light. They are always based on the current view of diplomacy. The common thread in this series: how large can a small country be on the world stage?
