CPD Releases 2017-18 Annual Report

This year

alone, CPD collaborated with Portland

Communications to jointly produce the


Soft Power 30

report, and

forged significant partnerships with

CSIS and Oxford University; it received

research grants from the European Union

Delegation to the United States and

Global Ties, U.S.; launched a Summer

Associates program to help place

exceptional students in internships in DC;

and trained several dozen international

professionals in various aspects of PD.

Those following CPD during its 15th year of existence will have seen a profoundly productive roster of activities that has advanced the Center's global thought and practice leadership. Between an important position paper signed by the full board asserting that public diplomacy is America's best foreign policy tool; impactful events across Los Angeles, the Midwest, PyeongChang and Johannesburg; and innovative research and analysis on topics ranging from the local impact of cultural exchanges to city diplomacy, CPD has contributed to robust discussions on the future of public diplomacy here in the U.S. and around the world.
