Publications by the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy are provided in three categories:
The first category are ISD books written by staff and associates on research conducted while at the Institute. Click the link for ISD Books to see the titles that are available. These ISD monographs are available for purchase on the Institute's e-commerce website, http://www.guisd.org.
The second category are ISD Reports, written by staff, associates, or ISD working groups, on research and discussions held on the Georgetown campus. These reports are available for download in pdf format on this website.
The final category are case studies in international affairs. A teaching case is a story describing, or based on, actual events, that justifies careful study and analysis by students. In other words, a teaching case is a story about the “real world” told with a definite teaching purpose in mind. The Institute for the Study of Diplomacy is a leading proponent of case instruction in international affairs. Faculty who would like to explore the case method are encouraged to talk with Charles Dolgas. You will also find the Faculty Club website of interest. With free subscriptions, you may review instructor versions of the case studies.
