Marc Lynch discusses the recent move by the Obama administration to create a desk at the National Security Council for “global engagement” which will take the lead in the inter-agency coordination of public diplomacy, international communications, foreign aid and other areas of general engagement. Lynch believes this is a positive move as it balances the inequity in resources between State and DoD through central coordination of U.S. policy and shows that the Obama team realizes that engagement goes beyond delivering high profile speeches.
