Foreign Affairs

The global community is increasingly connected through advances in communications and travel.  We have important economic, diplomatic, cultural, humanitarian and military links with other nations.  Decisions made and actions taken by the U.S. affect the lives of people throughout the world, and what happens elsewhere often affects us.

 

The international community – made up of individuals, organizations and corporations as well as governments – has the capacity to cooperate and work together on issues such as human rights, HIV/AIDS and other pandemics, the environment, financial stability, security and other important areas.
