The course design offered an excellent platform where I could learn and discuss the latest developments in both theory and practice with experienced lecturers and colleagues from all around the world. Hearing perspectives from different regions provided me with valuable insights. Though I practice public diplomacy in my day-to-day work, Diplo’s course added value to my work.
