Author, Researcher and Government Advisor, London Abstract
The phrase  Public Diplomacy is constantly heard in Foreign Ministries these days, even though the concept has been around since the Cold War. But what does it mean? Are we simply talking about governments promoting themselves and their policies to foreign publics, or does it signal a more profound change in the way that states work with  and against  each other in the age of globalisation? Is this a new theory of influence for a more connected and more democratic world? And if so, which governments are influencing which publics, how are they doing it, and who is monitoring them?
Management Consultant, U.S. Department of State; Professorial Lecturer, School of Media and Public Affairs, George Washington University, Washington, D.C. Abstract
The presentation discusses the convergence of traditional and public diplomacy, the challenges of the 21st century, and the confluence of diplomatic opportunities. As the international agenda is increasingly driven by changing demographics, diplomacy should be redirected toward a respectful engagement of developing nations. The digital revolution provides the opportunity for offering education, enhancing health case, building social networks, and promoting democracy. The evolving new diplomacy draws on traditional diplomacy, public diplomacy, and international development. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, It is motivated by a  decent respect to the opinions of mankind.
Head, European Commission Representation in Austria, Vienna Abstract
Im Zeitalter der freien Kommunikation ohne gesellschaftliche, geografische oder mediale Engpässe und der Vernetzung von Wirtschafts-, Politik- und Kulturwelten braucht es eine "Diplomatie 2.0". Diese muss den Menschen als primären Adressaten in ihren Mittelpunkt rücken. In der Diplomatie 1.0 ging es um die Vertretung von Interessen des Staates A gegenüber den Behörden des Staates B. Heute ist der Souverän jedenfalls in den meisten Staaten  das Volk. Und dessen Einstellung, die öffentliche Meinung, eine wichtige Richtschnur. Ist es daher nicht geboten, die Positionen des Landes bzw. der Organisation, die man vertritt, diesem Souverän möglichst direkt zu vermitteln? Und ist es nicht ebenso essentiell, die Meinungen in der Bevölkerung zu verstehen, um erfolgreiche Politiken zu formulieren  ob in den USA, im Nahen Osten oder daheim in Europa?
