Heritage Event: Public Diplomacy: Reinvigorating America's Strategic Communications Policy

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

Strategic communication has long been essential to furthering American foreign policy goals, especially during times of war. Recently, the government has taken numerous steps to improve its wartime strategic communication capacity. However, it is evident that the current system is not working as well as during the Cold War, and the United States still lacks an integrated public diplomacy strategy capable of bolstering America's image overseas. This panel will address the efficacy of the current administration's strategy and give recommendations for the next administration, whether it is Democrat or Republican.
