The Public Diplomacy Interest Group provides a forum for the scholars investigating topics related to public diplomacy, nation branding, country image and reputation, public relations for and of nations, as well as political, and global and intercultural communication that influences international relations.

The aim of the Public Diplomacy Interest Group is to bring together scholars investigating topics related to public diplomacy, nation branding, country image and reputation, public relations for and of nations, as well as political, and global and intercultural communication that influences international relations. It seeks to gather all perspectives, research methods, methodological approaches, and theories including critical approaches, and to encourage dialogue and debate on these growing interdisciplinary topics.

 CALL FOR PAPERS: Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Pre-conference

The Public Diplomacy Interest Group will organize a full-day doctoral and post-doctoral pre-conference at ICA on May 24. Titled "Emerging Research and Trends in Public Diplomacy and Nation Branding," the pre-conference will be a forum for doctoral and postdoctoral researchers/ young scholars to present and discuss their ongoing work on public diplomacy and nation branding. We welcome any topics, including digital diplomacy, evaluation and measurement of public diplomacy, theory building in public diplomacy, soft power, the role of cities, nation branding, etc.  Established scholars will provide feedback to each participant.

ICA18 in Prague will be a fantastic opportunity for emerging and established scholars from all over the world to meet and discuss the further development and growth potential of this interdisciplinary field of study. Facilitating debates on current state of the art, theories and methodologies in public diplomacy, as well as transferring knowledge and mentoring are the best ways to ensure its future.

The conference is sponsored by Lund University, Oxford Digital Diplomacy Research Group, Syracuse University, and the Center on Public Diplomacy at the University of Southern California. The full call for papers will follow shortly.


Any submission comes with the professional expectation that you will present that work as a registered attendee at the conference if it is accepted by the Interest Group.
