Asian Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs

The Asian Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs, is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit foreign policy think-tank, based in Kathmandu, Nepal.

AIDIA Dialogue, is a television talk show. A new initiative of AIDIA dedicated predominantly in foreign policy and economic diplomacy of Nepal and broadly the related global affairs for fulfilling the very gap in current television talk shows in Nepal hosted in English.


The show is filmed in a style reminiscent of 'Hard Talk' on the BBC and is aired weekly on Nepal's popular AP1 TV Channel.

Rather than just randomly picking up the issues for discussion from day to day headlines, the show intends to cover the incisive analysis on various facets of Nepal’s global affairs. Most significantly, AIDIA Dialogue aims to support in right-tracking the discourse and direction of Nepal’s foreign policy.

The show brings the politicians, bureaucrats, foreign diplomats, international relations scholars, business community, and other prominent figures for issue focused and robust constructive discourse.
