In commemorating Singapore International Foundation (SIF)’s 30 years of fostering cross-cultural understanding between Singaporeans and world communities, SIF is organising a virtual conference entitled Public Diplomacy in Asia 2021 in partnership with the University of Southern California’s Center on Public Diplomacy.
Public diplomacy is an essential part of international relations today given the interconnected world we live in. Non-state actors such as individual citizens, businesses, academia and civil society – recognising their growing influence and enabled by technology – are rapidly transcending borders to interact, collaborate, shape opinion, and develop solutions for a better world. But despite its crucial role, little attention has been paid to the practice of public diplomacy in Asia.
We invite interested participants to join us in conversation at the Public Diplomacy in Asia Conference 2021, to exchange insights on the state of public diplomacy in Asia. Join us as we examine current approaches, and devise new strategies, in engaging and building trust with global audiences.
The conference will also feature the launch of Winning Hearts and Minds: Public Diplomacy in ASEAN – a publication on the development and practice of public diplomacy by ASEAN member states.
