Foreign Policy Management is a responsibility of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs. To promote and protect their national interests, diplomats operate in a precarious global environment - at times with limited financial, human and technical resources. How effective is foreign policy pursuit without adequate funding? Can staff efficacy and rewards be enhanced? Can career and non-career appointments be balanced? Can professional diplomats be made without relevant training institutions? This book, using a case of Uganda Foreign Service, deals with key issues of staff training, resource adequacy and job performance. The analysis underscores the critical role of professional training, appropriate skills, relevant knowledge, planned growth and balanced career and non-career placements; buttressed by adequate funding, defined national interests and clear foreign policy objectives to enhance professionalism, effectiveness and efficiency. While no professionals can out-perform their training, resources also have significant impact. This book should be especially useful to professionals, practitioners, trainers and students of management, public policy, diplomacy and international relations.
