Protecting our country and our allies from the dangers of terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, international crime, and regional instability is necessary but not sufficient for achieving national security. A healthier, more educated, democratic, and prosperous world — in short, a better world — will also be more stable and secure.

Our strategic goals for democracy and human rights, economic prosperity and security, and social and environmental issues are part of a larger whole. It is no coincidence that conflict, chaos, corrupt and oppressive governments, environmental degradation, and humanitarian crisis often reign in the same places.

The broad aim of our diplomacy and development assistance is to turn vicious circles into virtuous ones, where accountable governments, political and economic freedoms, investing in people, and respect for individuals beget prosperity, healthy and educated populations, and political stability.

The following are the strategic goals that fall under this strategic objective:

Strategic Goal 7: Democracy and Human Rights

Strategic Goal 8: Economic Prosperity and Security

Strategic Goal 9: Social and Environmental Issues

Strategic Goal 10: Humanitarian Response
