professionals in various aspects of PD.

Now more than ever, soft power and public diplomacy are critical to international relations, and CPD is leading the way. Thanks to our one-of-a-kind professional training program and our innovative research and events, CPD has long been recognized as the definitive go-to destination among practitioners and scholars of PD.

Last year, we continued to expand our reach even further, connecting with a digital audience of nearly 200,000 people from all over the world through our website and social media accounts. Our CPD Professional Training program grew in multiple areas: the CPD Mini-Course came to Europe for the first time, and this summer we welcomed the largest CPD Summer Institute cohort to date. Our CPD Blog featured commentary from more than 80 authors in the field, and our new, original multimedia content about the fundamentals of PD has been shared with our diverse and growing social media follower base.

CPD’s upward trajectory is thanks to supporters like you who value our content and utilize our resources. Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to help us continue this important work.
