New Research Partnership with Global Ties U.S.

CPD is pleased to announce a new research partnership with Global Ties U.S. focused on evaluation of cultural exchanges.

Using the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) as a test case, over the next year CPD will evaluate the local impact of cultural diplomacy exchanges. The project will draw on scholarly works and practical experiences to develop a solid conceptual foundation for the evaluative analysis. New research will be conducted through a comprehensive literature review of cultural diplomacy and evaluation, site visits, customized surveys, a workshop in Washington, DC and a pilot study at three IVLP sites. 

This project is CPD's latest collaboration with Global Ties U.S. Previous examples include a special workshop on evaluating cultural diplomacy conducted by CPD in January 2016 at Global Ties' National Meeting.
