James Pamment, Senior Lecturer,

My research interests lie at the intersection of strategic communication, international relations and international development. I am particularly interested in how diplomats and organisations involved with diplomatic issues use communication to influence the conduct of foreign relations, particularly in light of the expansion of digital media and the new opportunities for networked relationships that they offer.
My most recent book is called British Public Diplomacy & Soft Power: Diplomatic Influence & Digital Disruption (Palgrave International Relations & Diplomacy Series, due out later in 2016), and covers the evolution of British diplomacy between 1995 and 2015. I am also author of New Public Diplomacy in the 21st Century (Routledge, 2013), which compares Swedish, US and British approaches to public, cultural and digital diplomacy. I am editor of Public Diplomacy & Development Communication: An Emerging Field of Study (CPD Perspectives Series, 2016), as well as a forthcoming special issue of the Journal of Place Branding & Public Diplomacy on the Nordic Region, and co-editor of the four-volumeEncyclopedia of Diplomacy (Wiley-Blackwell, due out 2017). I am author of more than 20 journal articles and book chapters in leading international journals such as Communication TheoryNew Media & SocietyInternational Journal of Communication, Public Relations ReviewDiplomacy and StatecraftInternational Journal of Strategic Communication, Popular CommunicationHague Journal of Diplomacy and the Journal of International Relations & Development. I am part of several major international networks and regularly present my research to governments, think tanks and other interested organisations.
Prior to joining the Department of Strategic Communication in 2016, I was a postdoc at the Department of International Development at Oxford University, and at the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. I was also a non-residential research fellow at the University of Southern California Center on Public Diplomacy between 2013 and 2015. Previous to this, I have worked at Karlstad University, Uppsala University, Södertörn University College, and the Department of Journalism, Media & Communication at Stockholm University, where I completed my PhD in 2011.


I am currently involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and thesis supervision within the following subject areas: strategic planning, public & digital diplomacy, organisational communication & strategic communication theory.
