dc.description.abstractThe role of soft power in U.S. foreign policy has become a common theme amongst government agencies. International training and professional exchanges are a part of soft power. Since the egregious attacks on 9/11, many have argued for an increase in this tool of statecraft. This thesis reviews the role of soft power in U.S. foreign policy and how that pertains to homeland security. Specifically, the study notes the importance of international military and law enforcement training and how these exchanges can enhance U.S. security and advance foreign policy. Moreover, the research reviews models of current Department of Defense international training efforts for consideration by the Department of Homeland Security. The many professional exchanges and international training efforts from agencies such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, and the International Law Enforcement Academies are also reviewed. A model for an international program to take place at the Global Borders College is presented. In conclusion, the paper will argue that through attraction and influence, the U.S. will be better suited for security in the future. Furthermore, the encouraging of international training and exchanges will assist in improving U.S. multilateral relationships in the twenty-first century.en_US
