Transatlantic Perspectives on Diplomacy and Diversity is a collection of essays from the 2014 Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship. Recognizing the intensification of transnational conflicts that both violently divide and intimately link our global communities, Humanity in Action designed this fellowship to tackle international relations and global diversity and to train young scholars who aspire to careers in foreign policy.
The authors of this volume represent the inaugural year of the Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship, an international group of advanced graduate students who convened in Washington, Paris and Brussels in 2014 to study issues of international relations and global diversity.
This selection of research essays spans a wide range of subjects: humanitarian intervention in Libya, sexuality-based asylum in the European Union, Qatar’s diplomatic and investment strategies, the growing divide between Russia and the West, ecological approaches to international relations and more.
Transatlantic Perspectives on Diplomacy and Diversity is available for purchase on Amazon. Humanity in Action provides the individual research essays free of charge in the Knowledge & Action section of its website.
