Additional Information

The Office of eDiplomacy serves as an applied technology think tank for the U.S. Department of State. We advocate for customers’ needs in IT investments, policies, and services; support U.S. diplomats across the globe with collaborative technologies; and promote diplomatic and technological innovations to both foreign affairs colleagues and civil society partners. To this end, we produce several products for diplomatic practitioners, including an internal blog, to help explain the technological tools that can be used to advance U.S. diplomacy.
