The USC Center on Public Diplomacy goes virtual, connecting audiences and PD professionals from around the world.

June 29, 2020

Housed at a world-class university with Los Angeles' rich cultural diversity at our fingertips, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy (CPD) is the leading academic center dedicated to the study and practice of public diplomacy. Since our founding in 2003, CPD has served as a valuable resource to practitioners, scholars, and students alike through our cutting-edge research, timely analysis, impactful events, and one-of-a-kind professional training.

CPD highlights five significant books and articles on the connection between race relations and public diplomacy.

We stand in solidarity with efforts to eliminate anti-Black racism and structural inequities.

As part of its commitment to building the academic field of public diplomacy, CPD will award $2,500 to an emerging scholar engaged in cutting-edge research on public diplomacy.
