2017 CPD Summer Institute in Public Diplomacy

A Signature Professional Education Program

The Summer Institute faculty boasts some of the world’s most distinguished public diplomacy practitioners and scholars, and our alumni network includes more than 200 public diplomats, non-state actors, and industry leaders.

The 2017 program reflects the fast-changing diplomacy landscape, providing a wide range of hands-on skills and analytical capabilities essential for an effective public diplomacy practice. The CPD Summer Institute covers the broad spectrum of public diplomacy tools, integrating the traditional areas of listening and advocacy with newer studies and practices, such as:

  • How to use data for effective research, evaluation, and campaign design;
  • Incorporating the policy/public opinion/media nexus into public diplomacy strategies;
  • Multimedia storytelling and strategic communication;
  • Case studies in public diplomacy of emerging global powers.
