"The Role of Diplomacy in Combatting Terrorism:
Past Lessons and Future Outlook
In the aftermath of the summit meeting between the U.S. and Russian presidents and its implications for global security concerns, an emerging critical question is whether traditional diplomacy can continue to serve as an effective statecraft in combating terrorism. Former distinguished American ambassadors will discuss past experiences and offer recommendations for the Trump administration to further international cooperation.
