Hague Journal Special Issue on the Future of PD

A special edition of The Hague Journal of Diplomacy, titled "Debating Public Diplomacy: Now and Next" and edited by CPD Director Jay Wang and Jan Melissen (Senior Fellow at Leiden University and Clingendael, and CPD Faculty Fellow) is forthcoming early summer 2019.

The collection features 12 essays reflecting on how the evolution of the global information environment presents new challenges for public diplomacy practitioners and academic analysis. Contributors include public diplomacy thought-leaders, senior scholars and emerging voices in the field.

This forward-looking issue covers today's critical public diplomacy topics that will only grow more pressing as the field continues to be shaped by the new global media landscape.

As the co-editors pointed out, “Making sense of what is going on now, and what may be next in public diplomacy, is as relevant for rising powers as it is for declining states. It matters to powers big and small, and those in the middle or occupying policy niches, as it does to an array of non-state actors.”

This special issue of The Hague Journal of Diplomacy aims to inspire new research and stimulate the debate on what is one of the most remarkable early 21st-century developments in diplomacy.
