Ethical Diplomacy

What is ethical diplomacy, and why is it so important? Is ethical diplomacy even possible in the current political environment? How does this atmosphere impact our ability to carry out effective diplomacy? What is happening in the State Department and how will this affect the nation in 2020 and beyond?
