Abstract
  • The important question that this study attempted to answer is Do diplomatic trips that neutral countries take during wartime influence the conflict? In investigating this question, a trip to Europe taken by U.S. Under Secretary Sumner Welles was inspected. A yardstick was created from the findings of prior literature on mediation. Welles’ trip during the beginning of World War II was then compared to this yardstick. The author found that Welles’ mission was insightful but did not influence European countries. Finally, diplomatic trips taken during wartime do affect the conflict but only if certain tasks are performed by the mediator.
