Recent years have seen the digitalization of diplomacy. Diplomats and diplomatic institutions throughout the world are embracing digital platforms to coordinate multi-lateral negotiations, foster ties with diasporas, deliver consular aid and create transnational advocacy campaigns. Notably, diplomatic institutions have also come to regard digital platforms as a medium for public diplomacy activities and the projection of soft power.
This has led to growing interest among young and emerging scholars in focusing on the fields of digital and public diplomacy. To recognize and support the work of doctoral students, and as part of their commitment to advance the study of digital and public diplomacy, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) hosted the first Doctoral Conference on Public Diplomacy in October 2016.
To build upon the success of the inaugural conference, CPD and the Oxford Digital Diplomacy Research Group (DigDiploROx), will be co-hosting a Doctoral Conference on Public and Digital Diplomacy at the University of Oxford from June 2-3, 2017.
