Connectiplomacy: Using our Differences to Connect (Paperback)
"It is important to have public diplomacy as a solution to one of the greatest weaknesses in US foreign policy that has exacerbated the unprecedented antiAmericanism of recent years-the US government's inability to conduct the "full spectrum" of diplomatic arts and integrate them with the other arts of statecraft at the level of grand strategy". -John Lenczowski, Founder, President Emeritus, and Chancellor of The Institute of World Politics, an independent graduate school of national security, intelligence, and international affairs in Washington, D.C. "Conservation diplomacy helps promote peace and security, enhances economic growth and inclusion in conservation, factors that improve global social outcomes." -Victoria Batesaki, Assistant project manager at Uganda Junior Rangers/ crocheter Kampala, Central Region, Uganda, Africa Learn the steps you can take to connect to the world around you.
