DIY Public Diplomacy
July 23rd, 2006

(via Beacon).

The USC Center on Public Diplomacy is taking an unusual path in attempting to collate what’s known about public diplomacy: create a wiki and let people contribute to and edit it. Information is arranged both by theme (see the ‘corporate diplomacy‘ entry) and by country (see a new case study on Malaysia’s public diplomacy) and format closely follows the Wikipedia model.

The wiki’s core is likely to change rapidly–watch for copious edits to the definition of public diplomacy, any section on whether USIA should be revived, and any opinions on the utility of international broadcasting–but there should soon be interesting, stable information at the edges.

From a brief glance this morning, most of the entries are brief or placeholders, just waiting for knowledgeable people like yourself to put their two cents in.
