CPD Dissertation Grant Award Recipient, Ph.D. Candidate, Lund University, Sweden
Isabelle Karlsson is a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Strategic Communication, Lund University, Sweden. Her research mainly concerns Sweden’s public diplomacy and enactment of foreign policy discourse in the international arena. In her dissertation project, she studies how public diplomacy as a communicative practice makes meaning of foreign policy. The focus lies on the processes in which narratives and discourses of ideological issues in Sweden’s feminist foreign policy are constructed.
Isabelle holds a B.A. in Communication Science and Sociology from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and a M.Sc. in Strategic Communication from Lund University. For her Master thesis, in which she studied the translation of feminism in Sweden’s nation brand communication, she received The Gullers Grupp Award.
