As nations throughout the world increasingly use the Web to articulate diplomatic positions and mold global opinion on international issues, St. Thomas University School of Law has launched Diplomacy Monitor. The site monitors this international output of communiqués, official statements, press briefings, position papers, interview transcripts and news releases from hundreds of Web sites operated by heads of state, ministries of foreign affairs, embassies, missions and even consulates and channels it into a single information stream for scholars, diplomats, journalists, researchers and anyone else who is interested.
