Public diplomacy has grown in the past decade as a field of academic study and educational instruction, with new or larger programs in educational institutions across the U.S. and in other countries. The Public Diplomacy Council provides forums with and links to these academic programs, and this section provides an overview and guide to activities in this field.
In this Academic Study section, there are several sets of resources, organized by the tabs on the left side of this page:
- Under the tab "PD Information and Views," the Council provides links to critical documents, academic and professional educational institutions, and blogs by Council members. And one person's work in this area is so extensive that he has a page of his own: "Bruce Gregory's resources" provides access to the books, periodicals, and online publications that Professor Gregory has collected over the years.
- Under the tab "PD Programs," you can find summaries and links to the major institutions engaged in the academic study of public diplomacy.
- Under the tab "Syllabi," there are links to academic course materials at major university-based academic programs.
- Under "Student Papers," the Council will host links to work by students in public diplomacy studies.
Of course the academic study of public diplomacy, as public diplomacy itself, is a large and dynamic field, and the Council welcomes suggestions for additional links and resources. You are invited to send your suggestions and comments by email to PDC@PublicDiplomacyCouncil.org.
