The time is right to invest in public diplomacy. With the world in flux, the need for public diplomats has never been more critical. Join us this summer in Los Angeles at USC for two weeks of immersive learning.

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.
