Aims & Scope
DA is sponsored by the Institute for Diplomatic Dialogue in the Americas, a non-profit organization founded and staffed by faculty members who participate or have participated in the Washington Model OAS (WMOAS). The WMOAS is coordinated by IDDA and the Office of the Assistant Secretary General of the OAS.
DA serves to provide an opportunity for all delegates and faculty to the WMOAS or the MOEA, which is run by the OAS throughout the hemisphere, to publish their work.
The scope of DA is varied and is organized thematically and regionally. The topics include: News and Announcements; Profiles; Research Notes; Student Reflections; Embassy Visits; Book Reviews; Teaching and Learning; and Faculty-Student Collaborative Research. Please see the "Themes" tab on the homepage for a more detailed discussion.
The regional focus takes into account the different academic calendars of North and South America in terms of submissions. The Spring-Summer issue will feature work by participants in the WMOAS. The Fall-Winter issue is devoted to work submitted by and for participants in MOEA, which is the Model OAS in Latin America and the Caribbean. However, submissions that are not focused on either Model (e.g. book reviews, teaching and learning, collaborative research) may appear in either the Spring-Summer or Fall-Winter issue.
