Introducing Q&A with CPD

The field of public diplomacy as a facet of international relations continues to develop and evolve in myriad ways. Where you practice, who you are, what your budget and objectives are, how you define successful public diplomacy – all of these factors can influence the efficacy of your PD campaign.

In this new series, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) will interview international thought-leaders as well as key practitioners of public diplomacy and related professional fields to provide our readers with insight into the inner workings of some of the world’s most thoughtful PD practitioners.

Our first Q&A is with Sir Martin Davidson, CEO of the British Council, and you can read the conversation here.

CPD will be posting a new interview periodically. So check back frequently, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
