2014 CPD Summer Institute in Public Diplomacy Training Program

2014 marked the ninth annual Summer Institute in Public Diplomacy, ran by the USC Center on Public Diplomacy at the Annenberg School. 

This intensive two-week training program allowed professionals from across the globe to immerse themselves in the growing field of public diplomacy. The Summer Institute equipped students with tools to better understand the role of public diplomacy, analyzed the impact of new communication technologies, and employ innovative approaches for improving the image and impact of their country or organization.

The course was taught by some of the world’s most distinguished public diplomacy experts. It covered traditional subjects, including cultural diplomacy, international exchanges, and advocacy, as well as cutting-edge topics, such as digital tools and analytics, ideology, diasporas, and nation/place branding. The 2014 Summer Institute also included special courses on creativity and leadership, digital storytelling, China’s public diplomacy, evaluation, and non-state actors.
