State Department: Staffing Shortfalls & Ineffective Assignment System Compromise Diplomatic Readiness at Hardship Posts
John Brummet & Jess T. Ford. Foreign Service employees from the U.S. Dept. of State (DoS) experience a variety of adverse conditions while assigned to U.S. embassies & consulates that are considered hardship posts (HP). Among these conditions are inadequate med. facilities, few opport. for spousal employ., poor schools, high levels of crime, & severe climate. 60% of 259 diplomatic posts are classified as HP. Many are of strategic interest to the U.S., including those in China, the Middle East, & the former Soviet states. This report reviews DoSís performance in filling positions at HP. It examines: the number, experience, & skills of staff in hardship positions & how these may affect diplomatic readiness; & how well DoSís assignment system is meeting the staffing requirements of HP.
