An engaging, two-day symposium, Building Bridges: The Tools of Public Diplomacy, is set to take place at Syracuse University on October 27 and 28, 2011. The Public Diplomacy program at Syracuse University and the Association of Public Diplomacy Scholars (APDS) will host the Fourth Annual Public Diplomacy Symposium to bring together academics, practitioners, state officials and diplomats in building discussion around the role and critical application of public diplomacy practices in American and international affairs. This year’s symposium is designed to spark dialogue around the use of public diplomacy tools, specifically in the salient region of the Middle East and North Africa. The panel format includes discussions focusing on unique tools utilized in public diplomacy: fine arts, public relations firms, international media, and humanitarian aid organizations. Guest panelists will include Frederick Carriere of the Korean Peninsula Affairs Center, Greg Loh of Eric Mower and Associates, Richard Roth of CNN, Robert Reilly of American Foreign Policy Council, and Meaghan O’Keefe Douglas of John Snow, Inc.
