PUBLIC LECTURE INVITE: Preparing the Next Generation of Diplomats

Posted on March 18, 2024

Based on his new book, Diplomatic Statecraft, Nicolas Kralev will discuss the imperative of building a modern curriculum in diplomatic tradecraft and partnering with some of the most respected former career ambassadors to create and deliver practical training programs with case studies and exercises from their decades in the Foreign Services. He will also share his experience transitioning from a journalist who spent a decade traveling around the world with four U.S. secretaries of state to an entrepreneur who responded to an urgent need to improve the state of diplomacy training globally. This is instructive as countries around the world struggle to effectively train their diplomats to engage an increasingly complex world.
Nicholas Kralev is the founding executive director of the Washington International Diplomatic Academy, an independent organization providing practical training in diplomacy. A former Financial Times and Washington Times correspondent, he covered and accompanied U.S. Secretaries of State Hillary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright on their travels around the world. He is the author of several books, including Other Army: The U.S. Foreign Service and 21st-Century Diplomacy; the first-ever textbook on how to practice diplomacy. He holds a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School.
