Chapter Summary

This chapter first reports the public diplomats' views on the state of U.S. public diplomacy and its importance to the nation. It then reviews lessons learned from their decades of experience in the field. The chapter outlines the public diplomacy specialists' recommendations for rebuilding United States (U.S.) public diplomacy. Although the survey focused on the men and women who served as public diplomats on behalf of the United States, the forward-looking results have implications for public diplomacy beyond U.S. borders. The views of United States Information Agency (USIA) alumni reported here contain valuable insights that should be integrated into discussions of how best to rebuild U.S. public diplomacy. The public diplomats' emphasis on the interpersonal dimensions of public diplomacy should receive special attention in the development of future U.S. public diplomacy initiatives.

Keywords: United States (U.S.) public diplomacy; United States Information Agency (USIA) alumni
