  1. Hi Dr. Faizullaev, I am writing a research proposal on the topic ‘relevance of diplomatic gestures in the Covid19 pandemic and beyond’. I am reaching out as I am currently reading your book entitled “Symbolic Insult in Diplomacy” and I find it enormously helpful in giving me insights on how I can improve on my research proposal for PhD admission.

    Could you kindly advise what other academic materials that you wrote as a source of my contribution to the topic on diplomatic gestures and other body language in diplomacy?
    Thanks a lot Ambassador!
