"A Three Piece Puzzle" is an international Conference taking place in London from August 25th - 29th, 2011 to explore the relationship between culture, international relations, and globalization through a program of workshops, lectures & discussions, debates, film screenings, art exhibitions, performances and cultural activities. The event will bring together artists and practitioners from the fields of culture, literature, and music, that will share their perspectives alongside renowned academics and leading figures from international politics, diplomacy, civil society, and the public sector. The audience will include scholars and academics, students and young professionals, artists, diplomatic and political representatives, representatives of civil society, and other interested stakeholders.

The conference will begin by looking in greater detail at "culture" and "identity" and how these terms are used and understood today. The program will then build on these components by considering the role that culture plays in contemporary international relations and the process of globalization. The conference will then explore and summarize the challenges that lie ahead and the complex relationship between culture, international relations, and globalization over the next two decades (during these five days the concepts of "cultural diplomacy" will also be explored in more detail).
