Applications are now being accepted to the 2017 CPD Summer Institute in Public Diplomacy.
This year's 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.

A Princeton PhD, was a US diplomat for over 20 years, mostly in Eastern Europe, and was promoted to the Senior Foreign Service in 1997. For the Open World Leadership Center, he speaks with
its delegates from Europe/Eurasia on the topic, "E Pluribus Unum? What Keeps the United States United" (http://johnbrownnotesandessays.blogspot.com/2017/03/notes-and-references-for-discussion-e.html). Affiliated with Georgetown University for over ten years, he shares ideas with students about public diplomacy.
The papers of his deceased father -- poet and diplomat John L. Brown -- are stored at Georgetown University Special Collections at the Lauinger Library. They are manuscript materials valuable to scholars interested in post-WWII U.S.-European cultural relations.
This blog is dedicated to him, Dr. John L. Brown, a remarkable linguist/humanist who wrote in the Foreign Service Journal (1964) -- years before "soft power" was ever coined -- that "The CAO [Cultural Affairs Officer] soon comes to realize that his job is really a form of love-making and that making love is never really successful unless both partners are participating."
