The past decade has seen foreign ministries launch virtual embassies, establish a social media presence, develop smartphone applications and write code. However, foreign ministries throughout the world and their embassies still face substantial challenges when attempting to leverage digital tools towards diplomatic ends.
This interactive talk will offer a new prism through which the impact of digital technologies on public diplomacy may be understood, providing analysis on how ministries of foreign affairs and diplomats are using digital technologies to achieve public diplomacy goals, as well as identifying strategies and best practices for leveraging digital tools in multilateral settings.
