New PD Magazine Explores Cyber-Diplomacy

The new Fall/Winter 2019 edition of the student-run Public Diplomacy Magazine emphasizes how the public diplomacy community should not be intimidated by cyberspace—rather, leadership in cyber affairs is what is needed to keep pace with the 21st century. 

Editor-in-Chief Jasmine Kolano notes how the new issue offers a variety of policy recommendations to address today's cyber challenges: "While cyber threats like hacking and disinformation may seem insurmountable, our magazine hopes to inspire innovative solutions that will aid future diplomats in enhancing states’ cybersecurity and narrative-sharing abilities on the web." Digital challenges may be new to us in the 21st century, she adds, but the fundamentals of diplomacy still set the foundation for proactive innovation. 

Public Diplomacy Magazine, now in its 10th year of publication, is produced by the Society of Public Diplomats (SPD) at the University of Southern California, with support from the USC Center on Public Diplomacy and the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism.
