The Shifting Role and Impact of Diplomacy in a World in Disarray
Join the Council for a discussion on the importance of diplomatic relations with Washington International Diplomatic Academy's Executive Director, Nicholas Kralev, who is author of "America's Other Army: The U.S. Foreign Service and 21st-Century Diplomacy" and a former Financial Times and Washington Times diplomatic correspondent.
About the Event
By definition, diplomacy brings people together to manage relationships and resolve disputes. In a world in disarray, it becomes humanity's best hope for avoiding conflict, bringing back order and securing a better future.
Nicholas Kralev, Executive Director at the Washington International Diplomatic Academy, will address the steps that the United States—and governments around the world—must take to give diplomacy its rightful recognition as a true profession, complete with all necessary resources and tools. He will also talk about how the work of diplomats has changed in the 21st century, and how smart, persistent and effective diplomacy can contribute directly to a nation's security and prosperity while promoting global stability in the process.
