Heritage Event: Public Diplomacy: Reinvigorating America's Strategic Communications Policy
Recorded on February 13, 2008
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.
