What is the meaning of "moral diplomacy"?


Moral diplomacy is diplomacy that confers benefits on nations with similar moral beliefs and punishes those that violate those beliefs. This type of diplomacy was championed by President Woodrow Wilson to support democracy and liberal ideals internationally.

Prior to Wilson's moral diplomacy, President Taft had championed dollar diplomacy, which supported the investments of American interests abroad. President Roosevelt had pursued a bellicose foreign policy. Wilson believed that both of these approaches were imperialistic and did not help the cause of liberalism and democracy. Moral diplomacy, on the other hand, gave rhetorical and monetary support to governments that acted in accordance with U.S. values. For example, in 1913, Victoriano Huerta seized control of Mexico. Though Huerta's regime wanted U.S. business, Wilson did not recognize the new government because Huerta came to power illegally. America recognized the Mexican government as soon as Huerta left power.
