First-Ever Doctoral Conference on Public Diplomacy
Governments and non-state actors are increasingly embracing public diplomacy as an indispensable tool for enhancing their soft power and increasing their global influence. There is growing interest among young and emerging scholars in focusing on this field. To recognize and support the work of doctoral students, and as part of its commitment to advancing the study of public diplomacy, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) will be hosting the first-ever Doctoral Conference on Public Diplomacy in Fall 2016, at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Doctoral students interested in presenting at the conference are invited to submit their paper abstracts now through May 30, 2016. For more information on submission requirements, please click here.
