2014: Public Diplomacy in Emerging Nations

The 2014 theme will focus on “Public Diplomacy in Emerging Nations.” It began as an attempt to observe public diplomacy from a non-American perspective. It has spiraled into this journal which is chocked full of different perspectives about public diplomacy and how it is practiced around the world.

It should be noted that we are using a very loose definition of emerging nations. Turkey, India, China, Russia, and Mexico are anything but emerging nations. They are full-fledged countries that are major players in the world. We think this makes the journal even more relevant. Comparative studies are an increasingly important part of political science; therefore it needs to become an important of public diplomacy so that we as a discipline can move forward.
