Art of Diplomacy Lecture Series
Since 2015, the Foreign Policy Institute (FPI) has held a series of speaking events with distinguished speakers and accompanying commentators from SAIS faculty or FPI Fellows. The events have been, and will continue to be, unique in that they are organized into a coherent series whereby attendees will gain an understanding of several different aspects of the diplomatic field from interviewers helping the speakers to draw out lessons learned from their careers.
Our objective is to increase SAIS students’ understanding of modern diplomacy as an art by exposing them to recent and current practitioners. We want to teach students how modern diplomacy is conducted, what the challenges that speakers have faced are, and how they used diplomacy tactics to approach them.
