Case Studies for Students

Welcome to the ISD Case Study Library. The library was established at Georgetown University's Institute for the Study of Diplomacy in 1985 as part of the Institute's mission to advance and expand the understanding and appreciation of the role of diplomacy in advancing national interests. The library offers scholars, instructors and students a link between the theories of international relations and political science and the practice and dynamics of diplomacy through issue-specific cases, many written by practitioners who lived the events they recount.

The ISD Case Studies Library is made possible in part by a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The statements made and views expressed in the case studies are solely the responsibility of the authors.
