The Public Diplomacy Symposium is an annual meeting that provides an environment in which critical and collaborative discussion and networking can occur between students and professionals in order to advance the field. This year, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss the ways in which public diplomacy is addressing the rising influence of new, 21st century actors.

Panel One: How Have Governments, NGOs, and International Institutions Adapted Their Public Diplomacy Efforts to Effectively Respond to Growing Threats to Security?

Panel Two: How Are Transnational NGO Networks Advancing Human Security Goals of Social Justice and Well-Being Through Public Diplomacy?

Panel Three: How Can Civil Society Engage in Public Diplomacy to Address Issues of Human and National Security?

Following the panels, attendees have the opportunity to attend a small, informational career fair and a U.S. Department of State Diplomacy Simulation.
