Who we are? 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. 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 community-based, volunteer-driven internationally operating 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. Number in UK Register: 12623951. This Platform (www. Publicdiplomacy. online} is a service of the Institut de diplomatie publique, transformed from the earlier social media network. Since the Platform was formed in 2012, we have grown in size and influence. We are thankful and proud to have such a diverse community coming together helping us shape the future of public diplomacy. This platform aims to advance public diplomacy, by combining research and practice in order to provide evidence-based information and guidance on implementing Inclusive Policy in the public diplomacy field. This video explains how the Institut works with its members. How we work? 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. How to get involved? All members work together to set our priorities, goals, objectives, and strategies and are organized into UNESCO IPL PUBLIC DIPLOMACY E-TEAM and WORKING GROUPS that concentrate on the most important initiatives identified by the Institut. The platform is a virtual workspace where resources and tools are centralized with the aim of facilitating communication and interaction in Working Group / E-Team, 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. 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: Science diplomacy Cultural diplomacy Economic diplomacy Health diplomacy Municipal diplomacy Humanitarian diplomacy Environmental diplomacy Sports diplomacy Water diplomacy. 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. Unlike other concepts, we believe that Public Diplomacy is not, and should not be, an instrument of Foreign Policy of any State. This is the main, and fundamentally important, feature of the Institute. To achieve this, the Institute depends on your support as volunteers. Work with your fellow policy practitioners to co-create knowledge and boost its use in the design and delivery of inclusive policies. Our governing bodies THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY The General Assembly is the highest decision-making body in the Institut. It is responsible for: Determining our overall policy and strategy, Appointing the Director. DIRECTOR is responsible for implementing existing plans and policies. On 26 April 2020 Dr. O. Weretelnik (Doctor/Ph.D. member, Germany) was appointed as Director of the Institute for the term of four years. THE SECRETARIAT The Secretariat is headed by the Director and provides administrative support for all our activities.
Doctor/Ph.D. members Members of the Ph.D. Council advise, update and inform our committees on urgent and relevant matters. 96 % of our Doctor/Ph.D. members have a doctoral degree from an accredited institution. Our Council is comprised of distinguished analysts, academics, public diplomats from all over the globe. We seek diversity in professional backgrounds, skills and employment history that is why the Institut aims to draw at least 30 percent of the Doctoral/ Ph.D. members from professional backgrounds other than the public diplomacy field. Our Members are direct decision-makers over the strategy and activities of the network and can also stand for the Board of Directors or occupy Country Director/Representative positions. Our members are known for providing high-quality services, engage in actions for continuous development, improvement of our network, have a high level of expertise in relevant fields for the other members of the Institut, are committed to the General principles and Ethical code, underpinning the Concept of administration of our network. As of 1st January 2021, Institut de diplomatie Publique has more than 100 Doctor/Ph.D. Members
