INSTITUT DE DIPLOMATIE PUBLIQUE / INSTITUTO DE DIPLOMACIA PUBLICA is an independent organisation that acts as a platform for collaboration in the field of public diplomacy with a particular focus on countries with limited economic resources.
Our core purpose is to advance public diplomacy, by bringing academics at all stages of their career together from across the world to share ideas, publish research and grow networks.
We are a volunteer-driven membership organization registered in the United Kingdom under the provisions of the Companies Act 2006, dedicated to facilitating the global exchange of information and knowledge.
This Platform ( https://www.publicdiplomacy.online/ } is a service of the Institut de diplomatie publique, transformed from the earlier social media network.
What we do?
We provide a direct channel of interaction among cultural activists, media, IGOs and NGOs, academics, and others seeking to advance the field of international virtual exchange (internet-based, cross-national communication and collaboration) in the following field:
The Institute acts as a space to test, model, and scale successful practices in public diplomacy, human rights monitoring, reporting and documentation, and institution-building for cross-regional implementation.
At the same time, we synthesise global best practices public diplomacy, contextualising them for the local level.
The Institute is open to cooperation and is happy to offer its expertise to all stakeholders in the form of consulting, training, or research.
Institut de diplomatie publique does not carry out its own original research- this work is carried out on a voluntary basis by members of the institute. However, can be said the Institute stimulates research in public diplomacy science by preparing comprehensive assessment reports reviewing the latest public diplomacy science, as well as a number of special reports on particular topics. These reports are prepared by teams of relevant researchers - members of the Institute.
Most of our members conduct independent multidisciplinary evidence-based research in the field of public diplomacy, with a particular focus on countries with limited economic resources and, based on that research, the Institute provides practical recommendations that advance the goal to secure a more open and safe international system.
Through our balanced public diplomacy programs and publications, the Institute encourages citizens to participate in the cultural and policy process.
We support objective research, analysis, and reports, as well as organizing international conferences on salient issues in international relations, global economy, culture, human rights.
We develop and support innovative approaches to international relations, such as our concept of Public Diplomacy.
Most existing concepts define Public Diplomacy as a set of techniques, methods, and practical measures developed, and implemented, by external relations bodies, and/or other authorized State bodies, supporting the main Diplomatic activities of the State, by broadcasting samples of national culture to a foreign audience.
Institute is developing its own Concept of Public Diplomacy.
The Institut intends to achieve the mentioned objectives and get an international visibility by interacting with public and private organisms from all parts of the world.
Besides promoting the dissemination of knowledge in the field of public diplomacy, we also cooperate with organizations that work for the improvement of quality of life for people affected by poverty, hunger, disease and illiteracy.
To promote a sound and inclusive multi-stakeholder dialogue to design and deploy PUBLIC DIPLOMACY ECOSYSTEM, through partnerships among the scientific community, policymakers, NGOs, the private sector, and civil society.
To foster international cooperation, showcase our scientific strengths to meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals through public diplomacy.
To position the Institute as an influential non-state actor in the field of public diplomacy and inclusive policy.

Who Funds the Institute?
We do not receive monetary donations for our programs but depend strictly on our community's voluntary support.
Membership is free and we don’t demand any contribution for membership, neither in time or money.
We are self-supporting through our own volunteer work because the Institute is a fellowship of members who share free results of their research, knowledge, skills, experience, and hope with each other that they may solve our common problems and help others.
The Institute is not allied with any political organization and does not wish to engage in any political, religious, or government controversy.
We are not a conflict-oriented community, we don't focus on change through appeals to authority (i.e., pressuring established power structures for desired changes), we don't create alternative systems outside of established power structures.
Our members join together to determine needs, plan ways of meeting and mobilize the necessary resource within the democratic system of value.
The Institute believes that the quality of our insights and ideas depends not only on contributions from diverse disciplines and both political and national perspectives but also on the diversity of our community.
At the Institute, language should not be a barrier.
Despite the fact that the Institute is legally incorporated in the UK, for many members and website users, English is not a first language, so we created a space where scientists can talk about science in an inclusive way that does not exclude non-English speakers.
Our response to the increasing cultural and lingual diversity in the Institute is our zero-tolerance approach against any kind of linguistic discrimination.
A key specificity of the Institute is the permanent concern for multilingualism.
We are committed to guaranteeing that each member understands what is being said and that they, themselves, are understood. This is essential, as it is the condition for ensuring that all participants can be equal during our co-work. Language must not be a barrier, but a tool for understanding.
This platform was founded with the mission to break down language barriers and create a united space by making it accessible to individuals whose cultural background does not include the English language.
How to get involved?
The Institut focuses on digital contribution and collaboration covering key global transformations.
The Institute relies on our members to govern the organisation, plan its long-term strategy and enable the Institute to operate as the professional body for public diplomats. Our members develop and maintain our curriculum, design and deliver examinations, audit our CPD, support our training courses, and in many more ways help us deliver on our statutory duties.
Members are encouraged to share their own research and analysis, organize around specific discussions or initiatives, and engage with existing projects, events and research.
All members work together to set our priorities, goals, objectives, and strategies and are organized into DIVISIONS.
Our resources and tools are centralized with the aim of facilitating communication and interaction in E-Teams, including Document sharing (spreadsheets, presentations, text files, etc.).
The ability of members to access and work with tools depends on the roles they have in the Institut or in E-Team.
Moderators control the scope of ability to access that can be assigned to members through roles.
Membership is reviewed on a rolling basis without a definitive term limit. We encourage our members log in to our collaboration and knowledge platforms and contribute regularly to maintain their membership status.
Members agree to contribute to and participate in the activities of the Institut.
A notable lack of engagement may result in membership being terminated.
Currently (2022), we create a report that highlights the results of the work of members of the Institut and contains definitions of terms, methods, tools, markers relating to intersectional analysis, interdisciplinary case studies displaying how to integrate the inclusive policy component into various fields of research and innovation, as well as concrete policy recommendations.
