CPD Releases 2016-17 Annual Report

This year

alone, CPD collaborated with Portland

Communications to jointly produce the


Soft Power 30

report, and

forged significant partnerships with

CSIS and Oxford University; it received

research grants from the European Union

Delegation to the United States and

Global Ties, U.S.; launched a Summer

Associates program to help place

exceptional students in internships in DC;

and trained several dozen international

professionals in various aspects of PD.

Last year, CPD built on its momentum and made significant progress in deepening its impact in the field of public diplomacy. Despite resource constraints, investment in research and analysis was doubled to bolster the practice and ensure the enduring growth of the Center. Partnerships and audiences continued to expand, providing another testament to the increasing worldwide interest in PD. The 2016-17 Annual Report outlines collaborations with Portland Communications on the third annual publication of the influential Soft Power 30 report and partnerships with CSIS and Oxford University. Research grants from the European Union and Global Ties, U.S. are detailed as well as the launch of a Summer Associates program, expansion of the CPD Faculty Fellows and Research Fellowship and professional training opportunities.

In 2018, CPD will celebrate its 15th anniversary, and while we may reflect on our past achievements, we will devote the coming year to focusing on future directions for public diplomacy, anticipating and shaping innovations and advances in the field. As always, we welcome and appreciate your continued support and we invite you to join us as we step into the future!
