Over the last few years, Chinese state media organs have accelerated a campaign to leverage U.S. social media platforms – namely, Twitter – to promote the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) narrative on several issues.

Skip to content Matt Field British Ambassador to Bosnia and Herzegovina 22nd August 2019 Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina Creativity – It’s Good Business This week, like many others, I have been enjoying the Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF). I feel particularly lucky that my first as UK Ambassador was the 25th SFF (I will admit to having sneaked in unofficially last year, just before I began my mandate). I am still star struck after seeing two of my favourite directors on stage to receive their ‘hearts’, Iñárritu and Pawlikowski, and a masterclass from Tim Roth. As usual, the festival has brought together a wide-reaching and exciting programme, which challenges as much as it inspires. As critic Roger Ebert put it, a film is a machine for generating empathy, and this year I have been transported to lives in a neglected French suburb, a rich Korean home, a Bosnian mahala, a US gospel concert, and many more places. Documentaries always have a special place for me, including this year’s bril..

Skip to content Carolyn Davidson Her Majesty’s Ambassador for Guatemala Part of UK in Guatemala 19th August 2019 Guatemala City, Guatemala Saving the Planet In my last blog I talked about the power of British film and TV (and music). Today I want to make a very ambitious claim – that British TV is saving the planet, or at least helping to save the planet. In 2017 the famous British naturalist and broadcaster David Attenborough made a programme – Blue Planet 2 – which had a global impact. Like all his programmes (and I have been watching them since I was a teenager – a long time ago!) Blue Planet 2 had some remarkable footage of the natural world in which we live and the amazing creatures, large and small, which inhabit it and, importantly, preserve it. The final episode of the programme showed, in glorious technicolour, the devastating effects of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. As a picture paints a thousand words, the impact of the images of turtles tangled up in plastic bag..
By Molly McCluskey When Ambassador Ritva Koukku-Ronde of Finland finally took the dive into Twitter in December 2012, she was in the company of another famous diplomat who joined the same day. Her first tweet? “Dear friends of Finland, if the Pope can do it I can do it, too.” Barring cheeky references to PopeREAD MORE
According to Michele Acuto, we have to start studying the impact that cities and those who govern them are having on global security. That’s because their ‘proximity’ to today’s security challenges is making them increasingly important actors in this domain. By Michele Acuto for ISN We live, many argue, in an ‘urban’ age in whichREAD MORE

The conversation between Brioni and the world’s sharpest thinkers opens a new chapter by revealing Rufus Gifford as the protagonist of the sixth episode of the ‘Legendary Minds’ interview series.
Rufus Gifford served as the United States Ambassador to Denmark from 2013 to 2017. In his capacity as Ambassador, he helped modernize the transatlantic relationship through youth engagement and institution-building, among other bilateral and global issues.

As part of a never-before-seen public diplomacy [JB emphasis] strategy, he was the subject of the documentary series I am the Ambassador.
