Diplomacy & International Political Economy Concentration

“In an increasingly competitive world where political and economic power is in flux and financial constraints are increasing, countries need to make clear decisions about where their priorities lie."

- Maaike Okano-Heijmans, “Economic Diplomacy,” The SAGE Handbook of Diplomacy, 2016
