Welcome to Tech Diplomacy Now

Technology is the crossroads and main battlefield of the four-dimensional diplomatic, economic, cultural and military contest between freedom and authoritarianism. Technology is either grounded in trusted democratic principles—respect for the rule of law, human rights, property, transparency, sovereignty and the environment—in order to advance freedom, or it is weaponized by authoritarian regimes and malign actors in order to control and oppress. 

We believe technology must advance freedom.

The Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue is the world’s preeminent trusted technology accelerator. As the leader of a new category of Tech Diplomacy, the Institute integrates technology expertise, Silicon Valley strategies, and foreign policy tools to build the Global Trusted Tech Network of governments, companies, organizations and individuals to accelerate the innovation and adoption of trusted technology and ensure technology advances freedom.​

We hope you find Tech Diplomacy Now a valuable resource on the emerging critical issue of technological diplomacy and its impact on our way of life.
