U.S. Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (2014-2018) Challenges and Opportunities
The United States is developing its second Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) — a broad assessment of the U.S. Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development and their effectiveness in furthering the country’s foreign policy objectives. Completed in 2010, the inaugural QDDR outlined a broad framework for augmenting and leveraging U.S. “civilian power” to advance core U.S. interests. In the four years since the first QDDR was released, however, new threats, challenges, and opportunities have emerged that this review will need to tackle.
Please join us for a half-day event, in which high-level government officials, as well as experts from GMF and the Transatlantic Academy will analyze the main challenges this QDDR should address — both policy priorities and inter-/intra-agency coordination — and provide recommendations for how to do so.
