How Soft Power is Transforming Statecraft

A Global Ranking of Soft Power Nations 2017

CPD and Town Hall Los Angeles will bring together leading practitioners in Los Angeles to explore innovative ways nations are developing and deploying their soft power assets with far reaching global consequences.
