The Institute for the Study of Diplomacy is an integral part of the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. It is somewhat obscure what it actually train people in, but it "prepares students to work effectively in careers beyond diplomacy, in an interdisciplinary, interagency and multilateral context".

The institute trains lots of people from the armed forces, the Army War College, intelligence services and the State Department.[1]

It also hosts the Georgetown Leadership Seminar, "which promotes dialogue on global affairs among individuals from the public, private and nonprofit sectors who will shape the future of their organizations and countries."

The institute co-sponsors events with CIA's Center for the Study of Intelligence (CSI)[2]


"Diplomacy is seen not as simply the purview of the diplomat or exists within the confines of state-to-state relations, but encompasses the broad range of governmental and nongovernmental players concerned with issues as old as war and peace, as new as cybersecurity or climate change, and as critical as human security and good governance. The Institute also seeks to look beyond the issues of the day and explore the over-the-horizon challenges and the impact of domestic politics on the limits and opportunities of diplomacy."
