City & State Diplomacy Toolkit

Edited by Max Bouchet, this toolkit seeks to help local officials grow their international engagement and learn from best practices and lessons from their counterparts in the U.S. and abroad.

As recommended by the Truman Taskforce for City & State Diplomacy, the toolkit responds to the lack of readily available resources and knowledge on effective city & state diplomacy. By examining a wide array of local efforts on global issues, the toolkit also showcases the role of city & state diplomacy in advancing foreign and domestic policy goals.

This Toolkit is regularly updated, with briefs published on a rolling basis. If you’re using this Toolkit to apply an innovation locally or have questions or suggestions, please fill out this short survey.
