As a part of their international strategy, more and more countries, regions and cities are investing in public diplomacy. Through communication and branding activities, cultural and educational cooperation and civil society initiatives, they are seeking to strengthen their international reputation and defend their trade, tourism and other national interests. What are the recent developments and latest trends in this field? What is the potential for regions and cities, and for the EU as a whole? What is the role of government communicators in this domain?

Public authorities often work in structured partnerships with the media at local, regional, national or EU level to support government communication. The degree to which they cooperate depends on the political and media model of each country, and can take different forms, including editorial cooperation between journalists and government services and sponsored thematic programmes. What is the impact of these media partnerships? What elements make a partnership successful? How can journalistic independence be reconciled with the authorities’ own communication ambitions?
