Promotion methods in foreign ministries

01 December 2014

Event description

In Diplo’s second policy brief, Amb. Kishan S Rana looked at ‘Promotion methods in foreign ministries’ and made three crucial suggestions for improvement. Rana argued that many countries are yet to establish proper methods of promotion, a lack of which undermines professionalism and morale. He advocated a shift from seniority-based promotion to performance-based promotion and stressed that while acknowledging the tradition and ethos of each country, ministries of foreign affairs need to look at and learn from best practices.
