This is a report by the American Academy of Diplomacy and the Stimson Center regarding the necessity for a renewed emphasis on the diplomatic side of U.S. foreign policy. According to the report, there is a marked underinvestment in diplomacy, and a disproportionate emphasis on military expenditures. This recommends three broad courses of action to address this deficiency, and advocates for increased training and education for diplomatic professionals.
