Humanity in Action is proud to release Transatlantic Perspectives on Diplomacy and Diversity, the latest publication from Humanity in Action Press. This collection features selected essays from the 2014 Diplomacy and Diversity Fellows, who convened in Washington, Paris and Brussels in May and June 2014. This new book, which represents the inaugural year of Humanity in Action's advanced graduate-level fellowship, also marks the expansion of the international organization's publications as it now works toward its sixth release.

Over four weeks, the authors of these essays trained and studied collaboratively in issues of international relations and global diversity. This selection of research essays provides a preview of the important contributions that these fellows will make as they develop international careers. The essays demonstrate the ingenuity, cultural understanding and values of the Fellows as well as their desire to seek out answers to the most challenging diplomatic and social issues. The diverse interests and backgrounds of the cohort are reflected in the wide range of research subjects. At the same time, the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of the Fellowship can be traced through the larger questions that run throughout this diverse collection, which has been organized by theme.

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.

Anthony Chase edited the volume. The Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship contributors are Bastiaan Bouwman, Daphné Joseph-Gabriel, Johannes Lukas Gartner, Jessie Landerman, Giselle Lopez, Ava Morgenstern, Jake Robert Nelson, Fabiana Sofia Perera, Kyle James Rohrich and Jessica Wamala.
