To introduce the complex work of diplomats working around the globe to protect the interests of their citizens and their constitutions, the Future of Diplomacy Project will screen the acclaimed PBS/Foreign Policy Association documentary chronicling the history of the U.S. Foreign Service, preceded by a discussion between two voices featured in the film, Belfer Center's Executive Director of the Future of Diplomacy Project, Cathryn Cluver, and Professor Joe Nye, former Dean of the Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor.

Narrated by Kathleen Turner, America's Diplomats explores the role of diplomats in shaping America, through the eyes of those on its front lines. From Ben Franklin to Benghazi, the film highlights the sacrifices made by those working behind the scenes to change the world. Preview the film ›
