-Nicolas J. Cull, University of Southern California

-Katharina Hone, DiploNews


Daryl Copeland charts the course for a new kind of diplomacy, one in tune with the demands of today’s interconnected, technology driven world.
Eschewing platitudes and broadly rethinking issues of security and development, Copeland provides the tools needed to frame and manage issues ranging from climate change to pandemic disease to asymmetrical conflict and weapons of mass destruction. The essential keystone of his approach is the modem diplomat, able to nimbly engage with a plethora of new international actors and happier mixing with the population than mingling with colleagues inside embassy walls.
Through the lens of Guerrilla Diplomacy, Copeland offers both a call to action and an alternative approach to understanding contemporary international relations.
