Public Diplomacy workshop in South Africa
11 April 2011 - 15 April 2011
Pretoria, South Africa
The Public Diplomacy workshop organised recently in Pretoria, South Africa – part of the Public Diplomacy Capacity Development Programme – also included online training for junior diplomats (ongoing since March 2011) and training for parliamentarians (19-20 April 2011). The workshop provided a comprehensive introduction to public diplomacy, including political and strategic preparations, organisation and diplomatic support, language and persuasion, and e-diplomacy. The underlying theme was South Africa's public diplomacy strategy for the upcoming Climate Change Summit, which will be held in Durban, South Africa, from 28 November to 9 December 2011.
