The debate on public diplomacy now dominates research agendas in diplomatic studies. (Jan Melissen, “Beyond the New Public Diplomacy”, 2011)

 Public diplomacy – along with the affiliated concepts of “soft power” and “smart power” - has become a conspicuous aspect of foreign affairs in the 21st century.  The course examines the history, utilization, means and morality of public diplomacy worldwide:  from the EU countries to the United States to China.
