Re-booting America’s Image in the World

A CPD Roundtable with Dean Ernest J. Wilson III

The USC Center on Public Diplomacy was proud to host Ernest J. Wilson III, Dean of the USC Annenberg School for Communication, for a presentation on "Rebooting America's Image in the World." Dean Wilson recently returned from Washington, D.C. where he served on the Presidential Transition Team for President-Elect Barack Obama. As part of the presidential transition, Dean Wilson led a team reviewing America's international broadcasting services, including the Voice of America and the Broadcasting Board of Governors, and advised the transition team working with the U.S. Department of State on public diplomacy issues. Dean Wilson discussed his experiences serving on the Presidential Transition Team and offered his assessment of the limits and potential for public diplomacy under the new administration as it seeks to re-cast America's image abroad.
