Training for Public Diplomacy: an Evolutionary Perspective
In his chapter of this book, and elsewhere, Brian Hocking has distinguished between two phenomena in the contemporary international system: a state-centred group of actors operating in a more or less ordered hierarchy; and a more amorphous set of networks between peoples and institutions co-existing and interpenetrated with the first group. It is a system in transition, and governments are adapting their diplomacy to the change, with increasing attention being paid to public diplomacy. Training regimes are similarly in transition.
