Call for Papers Journal of Contemporary Eastern Asia (JCEA), Vol. 19, No 1 – Summer 2020 The Digitalization of Diplomacy in South-East Asia: A Special Issue Invited editors: Ilan Manor, University of Oxford (email@example.com) Craig Hayden, Marine Corps University Hyunjin Seo, University of Kansas In recent years scholars have paid growing attention to the digitalization of diplomacy. Studies have examined the use of digital platfroms and digital technologies in the realms of public diplomacy, consular diplomacy, multi-lateral negotiations and security negotiations. However, the current digital diplomacy research corpus suffers from three limitations. First, the majority of digital diplomacy studies have analyzed how diplomats use digital technologies as opposed to why these have been so eagerly adopted by diplomatic institutions. Subsequently, few studies have offered a broad theoretical prism through which the digitalization of diplomacy may be conceptualized and investiga..
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..

Despite the emergence of new technologies the task of evaluating public diplomacy activities remains a daunting one. While scholars and practitioners have offered numerous definitions for the term public diplomacy, they have yet to agree upon a method for measuring the impact of public diplomacy activities.
Some have suggested that public diplomacy is a means towards creating a receptive environment for one’s foreign policy. This definition suggests that one has to gauge the environment in which public diplomacy is practiced and track changes within this environment. But what is this “environment”? Are there several actors comprising this environment? If so, which actors should be monitored? And how can this monitoring take place?
Other definitions state that public diplomacy is a tool for winning over the “hearts and minds” of foreign populations and swaying foreign public opinion in one’s favor. Yet how can one assess his ability to win over hearts and minds? Should he preform a lo..READ MORE
When National Geographic Abu Dhabi in April posted a seemingly benign image of Nubian ibex climbing cliffs on its Facebook and Twitter accounts, its social media pages quickly blew up. The problem? A caption referred to the location as the “Judean Desert” and as “Ein Gedi,” which overlook the Dead Sea. The item caught theREAD MORE

Media Freedom and PD
Jul 30, 2019
Freedom of the media around the world has faced a “downward spiral,” writes this year's “Freedom and the Media” report by watchdog organization Freedom House. From Hungary to Austria to Israel to the United States, government leaders have attempted to manipulate the media environment and vilify journalists—elements of this new, “illiberal toolbox” are symptoms, the report says, of a worldwide decline in democracy.
What does this deteriorating media environment mean for public diplomacy practice?
“Social media are still worth saving,” writes Freedom House Technology and Democracy Research Director Adrian Shahbaz. While the spread of disinformation has created challenges, there is still space for policymakers, technology companies and civil society to come together and bolster the internet as a positive platform for media engagement.
“At a time when the harmful aspects of these platforms are being exposed and debated around the world, the..READ MORE
Social media platforms often create a gray area in public diplomacy. Are Twitter “likes” indicative of meaningful relationships? In a new study published by USC Annenberg's International Journal of Communication, 2017-2019 CPD Research Fellow Diana Ingenhoff of the University of Fribourg and Efe Sevin of Reinhardt University assert that they are not.
Warning against over-valuing “likes,” Ingenhoff and Sevin introduce solutions for the many difficulties in measuring the effectiveness of social media-driven public diplomacy campaigns to improve a country's nation brand. By examining Twitter activity from the governments of Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland and Belgium, their model considers both content (ideas expressed in posts) and digital networks (the links between users built through retweets, mentions, etc.). Notably, four dimensions are defined for measuring social media's impact on country reputation: fu..READ MORE
