The February issue of PDiN Monitor focuses on The Future of Public Diplomacy and will introduce a new structure for CPD's regular analysis of public diplomacy in the news. Beginning this month, CPD will graph overall trends in public diplomacy news aggregated daily in PDiN. Monthly analysis of these trends will appear in PD Snapshot while the Spotlight section will provide a more interactive space for public diplomacy practitioners and scholars to hear from one another.

Responding to the question "from your perspective, in what direction do you envision the future of public diplomacy heading over the next 5 years?"a number of PD practitioners and scholars provide their responses in Experts Answer. We invite our readers to add their perspectives in the comments box of this section.
