CPD Research Fellow Published by the Clingendael Institute

CPD research fellow Caitlin Byrne (2010-2012) has been published, with co-author Rebecca Hall, by the Clingendael Institute for a piece discussing Australia's international education programs as potential arenas for enhancing soft power.

In the work titled "Australia's International Education As Public Diplomacy: Soft Power Potential," Byrne and Hall point out how international education is a tool for promoting soft power. If the experience is positive, faculty and students alike have their lives enriched by their interactions and are left with educated, honest impressions of the nation. The authors suggest that Australia can utilize this platform for further public diplomacy endeavors but much more needs to be done to harness the full potential of this medium.
