The Greatest Diplomatic Network in the World
The USA operates hundreds of embassies and consulates across the globe. In fact the USA has the most extensive diplomatic network of all the countries in the world. When you combine this vast network with a President with the charm, attention span and interpersonal skills of Donald Trump you can see how it could be used to make America great again.
The Lowy Institute's Global Diplomacy Index ranks the diplomatic networks of all the countries in the G20 and OECD. The index ranks each of these 42 countries based on factors such as the number of embassies and consulates each country operates across the globe.
The Global Diplomacy Index Network Map allows you to view the diplomacy ranking of each of the 42 countries featured and to view the diplomatic networks of each country. If you select a country on the map you can see the locations of its diplomatic missions in each country across the globe.
The yellow dots on the map show cities around the world where G20 or OECD nations have diplomatic posts. Click on a city's dot and lines connect to the city showing every G20 or OECD country with a diplomatic post in the city.
