2017 America’s Diplomats Film Screening and Discussion – Presented by the World Affairs Councils of America and the American Academy of Diplomacy
The objective of this program is to examine and analyze what the American public wants to know about foreign policy, what they expect from foreign policy, and what makes people comfortable or uncomfortable with the conduct of American foreign policy. The program features a screening of the PBS film America’s Diplomats, followed by a discussion of the role of U.S. diplomacy with a distinguished former ambassador.
The Academy will provide a copy of the film for screening and also will make available a former ambassador to speak on the importance of contemporary American diplomacy. The event will include a Q&A session with Council audiences. The program also consists of ancillary community outreach activities, including media interviews and a separate roundtable discussion (60 to 90 minutes in length) with a small, diverse group. During these roundtables, the former ambassador would like to hear from local Council membership in order to better understand the foreign policy views and concerns of communities across the WACA network.
