Manus, Machina and Digital Diplomacy

Headlines in this week’s PD News roundup explored the intersection between digital media and public diplomacy. In Afghanistan and Senegal, digital entrepreneurs are empowering new generations of female netizens to code, develop digital literacy and become connected to a “world beyond their borders;” while in Latin America, digital news outlets are working with rural and indigenous communities to create multilingual platforms that “buil[d] bridges between journalism, activism and citizens.” Other headlines looked at Pokemon Go, geo-mapping and social media coverage in times of crisis.
