It's all about image: Nation Branding & Public Diplomacy
This week's PD News headlines explored nation branding initiatives, problems, and developments around the world. While the racially-charged events in Charlottesville, Virginia reflected poorly on the United States' national and global image, a piece of Hollywood is traveling to South Korea in a new theme park featuring the popular Hunger Games and Twilight franchises as theme park attractions. Other stories looked at Armenia's rising IT scene and the NGOs working to teach children about technology, and African nations, like Ghana, entering the space race by developing and deploying their own satellites into space.
