"Strengthening the Department of State"

Effective American diplomacy demands a strong Department of State to execute it.  The Academy's new report offers the Department recommendations for how to enhance its structures and processes to better identify, recruit, train, support, equip, and protect its people in the Foreign and Civil Service.

"Support for American Jobs – Parts I & II"

"Support for American Jobs - Parts I & II" are two reports based on business views of U.S. commercial diplomacy programs, prepared by the American Academy of Diplomacy under the direction of the Una Chapman Cox Foundation.
