Dr. Diplomacy or: How I Learned to Stop Working and Love the Blog

with one comment

Gentle readers,

The Hybrid Diplomat realizes that this experiment began in earnest with the intent of posting from the Anglo-American-Irish perspective. Also, as promised, this blog has also seen its fair share of cheekiness as well.

In an effort to blog more, the Hybrid in Hybrid Diplomacy will now not only reflect the hybrid nature of the Hybrid Diplomat, but  also the necessity for hybridity (of course that’s a word!) in the pursuit of a country’s national interest through the successful conduct of its foreign policy. The hybrid focus, you ask? “We are elevating development and diplomacy as core elements of our foreign policy, alongside defense.” –the U.S. Secretary of State (or just S as the HD knows her).

So there you have it, folks: a focus on the three Ds – defensediplomacy and development.

The HD will continue to work tirelessly to bring in guest perspectives, analysis from specialists, and new information from confidential sources.

  1. I’m keen to hear more about the defense and development aspect of this blog. Too long you have focused on the diplomacy, and we all know that good ol’ GWB would have disapproved of such a narrowminded focus.

    I’d be interested in hearing what the HD has to say on the upcoming referendum in pseudo-independent Southern Sudan, and the potential conflicts resonating from either side of the outcome. There are a multitude of international factors involved: United States, African Union, the Islamic bloc, China, and last, but certainly the most important, OIL! This topic deals with strategic security, economic and political instability, and development.

    Also, an unnamed professor, code-named Dr. One-Shh, would approve of such topics.
