Obama’s ‘smart power’ yields mixed results

Considered a softer diplomatic approach, the Obama administration’s policy has not always worked.

President Barack Obama has tried to distance his politics from previous administrations with a policy called “smart power”.

Officials say “smart power” is an investment of time and money in defence, diplomacy, and development and is not a diversion from tackling major crises.

However, this method has not always worked.
