The Public Diplomat is a public diplomacy content aggregator run by Professor Guy Golan and public diplomacy graduate students at the Newhouse School. Its mission is to explain public diplomacy by providing a multi-media platform to ideas, research and events that catalyze the engaging of different cultures.
The Public Diplomat is the effort to understand, the willingness to change viewpoints, and the dedication to honesty. To be a public diplomacy practitioner today requires constant learning, discovering and appreciating. It is developing long-term relationships with myriad people as a means to truly understand their myriad viewpoints. It is an appreciation of culture and politics and whatever is in between. The Public Diplomat is a means to explore these efforts in a, naturally, public space.
