  • Product Description

    This ethics and foreign policy case focuses on the relationship between the United States and the government of Guatemala, accused of widespread human rights violations and under US pressure to change. This case assumes the point of view of the US State Department and reviews a series of diplomatic tactics, and ambassadorial strategies, meant to influence the Guatemalan government. The case allows for discussion of reasons why those efforts were ineffective and invites debate as to how, or whether, to pursue internal change in Guatemala more effectively.
