Example text

In Germany, after World War II, civil servants were encouraged to hold their own political affiliation (they even serve in party secretariats on deputation). The French Grandes Ecoles graduates have long had a revolving door relationship, covering the civil services, politics, and the corporate world. 8 In many developing countries politics now intrudes openly into the public services; in some Latin American and African countries the majority of envoys sent abroad are political appointees. One challenge: diplomacy is not yet recognized as a specialized profession.

The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has been hollowed out, and remains as a loose coalition of have-not states; its ritualistic biennial summits persist, but NAM members are much more preoccupied with smaller, issue-based groupings. In essence, every country finds value in working with networks that stretch into far regions, in pursuit of common or shared objectives. Often, economic opportunity provides the driving force, and this too is subject to globalized concerns. Regional diplomacy has taken on a life of its own.

Some among them have demanded the personal status of governors and cabinet ministers, which means nothing in their country of assignment; such personal ranks tend to give them inflated notions of their importance. And yet, some noncareer envoys have delivered outstanding performance. 21 While instances of errant behavior are swept under the carpet in most countries, informal conversation with diplomats from many indicates that a deeper and more pervasive problem is that political appointees are often not focused on national tasks, and pursue personal agendas.
