The Sound and the Flavor of Public Diplomacy

From nation branding through food to the sound of music diplomacy, headlines in the week’s PD News roundup explored the sensory side of international culture. In Nigeria, a new musical is showcasing the nation’s diversity and cultural heritage, while in Israel, a popular Instagram account, “Hot Dudes Eating Hummus,” hopes its “apolitical branding campaign” will celebrate the “entire diversity of Israeli society, which means representing all religions and ethnicities, whether Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or other.” Other headlines looked at coffee diplomacy, EuroVision and culinary exchanges.
