“Edmund Asbury Gullion, 85, Wide-Ranging Career Envoy”
Wolfgang Saxon, The New York Times, March 31, 1998
Edmund Asbury Gullion, one of the country's most accomplished career ambassadors and former dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where he trained the next generation of Foreign Officers, died in his sleep the night of March 17 at his home in Winchester, Mass. He was 85.
The cause was apparently a heart attack, the Fletcher School reported.
Mr. Gullion earned his spurs in war-torn Europe and ended his diplomatic career in 1964 as United States Ambassador to the recently independent Congo, a flashpoint of the cold war. As an old hand on Indochina he was also deeply involved in the conflict that tore at Southeast Asia, whose reverberations followed him even after he settled into academe in Medford, Mass.
He was dean of the Fletcher School from 1964 until 1978.

On the success side of the ledger, China’s rise to greater prominence has been one of the defining features of recent decades. For instance, data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) since 2014 asserts that China’s economy is now larger than its US counterpart on the basis of purchasing power parity (which makes adjustments for the fact that goods are cheaper in China and other countries relative to the US).
In so doing, Beijing has recorded an average annual gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate of around 9.5 percent in the past 40 years. The result has been the..

[JB emphasis]Watch an exclusive video interview with Kyle Matthews, Executive Director of the Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) at Concordia University. Matthews spoke to CPD at Diplocamp 2019 during PD Week in Brussels, which convened diplomats, thought leaders, scholars and more to learn and share best practices for how technology is fundamentally shaping the field of public diplomacy.”There isn't one AI. … It really is, people say, a technology that's going to transform the world—it's going to transform economies, it's going to transform international relations, so it's really important that we study this,” says Matthews. “We need to build a core group of people in academia, in think tanks and in governments who are going to share best practices an..
