Abstract

This analytical research identified and discussed the theoretical relevance of diplomacy as a sharp instrument for foreign policy management and diplomatic pr;~~Ha and after presenting incontrovertible empirical facts from case studies which include lraq, Somalia, Liberia, Kosovo. Sierra Leone, Rwanda and Burundi the paper opined that in practice, diplomacy has become a blunt tool for foreign policy management hence irrelevant in contemporary world politics. From this basic premise, the exposition concludes that given the multiplicity of woeful failures of diplomacy to settle world conflicts and th'' tact that mankind prefers diplomacy instead of wars, the paper still expects diplomacy to prevail. May diplomacy prevail?
