ABSTRACT
This article explains that multilateral diplomacy is used to connote a wide variety of activities in international relations, which are more consistently multilateral than diplomatic in character. The techniques of multilateralism are sometimes turned to the problem of achieving the settlement of specific disputes, or the diminution of tensions in particular situations; in such cases, multilateral diplomacy is a term of literal description. But multilateralism is also applied to such matters as mobilizing the collective condemnation of a state whose behavior is alleged to fall below acceptable international standards, organizing a general colloquium on the problems of the global situation and on national policies for dealing with those problems.
