WELCOME TO CHAPTER 6: "MORAL GRAVITY"

"Moral Gravity" is the sixth chapter of the Diplomatic Planner. In this series, you will learn how something that is legal isn't necessarily moral, ethical or in the best interest of the people. Personal conflict of interest is rife in international relations and learning to manage such dilemmas will train you to be a better operative in the field. A solid set of moral principles will help you preserve your integrity in the face of challenges and adversity, helping you maintain control while also remaining empathetic to the concerns of others. This series will help you identify professional dilemmas with strategies for dealing with them.

By the end of the chapter, you will be able to determine whether the career you have chosen is truly an ethical fit for you, with remedial actions to consider.
