U.S. Department of State - Great Seal

U.S. Department of State

Diplomacy in Action

Diplomacy Lab

Diplomacy Lab was designed to address two priorities: first, Secretary Kerry’s determination to engage the American people in the work of diplomacy. And second, the imperative to broaden the State Department’s research base in response to a proliferation of complex global challenges. The initiative enabled the State Department to “course-source” research and innovation related to foreign policy by harnessing the efforts of students and faculty experts at universities across the country.
