This course examines why in an age of globalization and instant communication diplomacy remains the essential instrument of foreign policy in preventing and resolving conflict. In a seminar-type format, we will examine questions including:  What is diplomacy? What are the principal tools and methods of diplomacy and why is it integral to the practice of statecraft? What are “hard” and “soft” power in diplomacy and how and when are they used?  There will be a series of case studies and a concluding diplomatic simulation exercise.
