The U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy (ACPD) will hold a virtual public meeting Wednesday, June 1, 2022, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m., to preview the April 2022 ACPD special report, Exploring U.S. Public Diplomacy’s Domestic Dimensions: Purviews, Publics, and Policies. The meeting will feature a panel of municipal diplomacy professionals who will discuss the relationship between city diplomacy and domestic public diplomacy.
Congress created the bipartisan ACPD panel in 1948 to appraise U.S. Government activities intended to understand, inform, and influence foreign publics. The Commission conducts research that provides honest assessments of public diplomacy efforts, and disseminates findings through reports, white papers, and other publications. It also holds public symposia that generate informed discussions on public diplomacy issues. The Commission reports to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress.
