Psychological Diplomacy (PsyDip) is diplomacy that makes use of psychological tools, including psychological theories, research, and interventions. It is the diplomatic counterpart to Psychological Warfare (PsyWar). Whereas PsyWar uses psychology to reach military objectives, PsyDip uses psychology to reach diplomatic objectives. This blog both invents the term Psychological Diplomacy and actively explores the possibility that psychology can improve international relations.
