Event Details


For centuries, embassies had a monopoly when it came to transmitting information from one country to another. But with the advent of new means of communication, international relations are no longer the exclusive province of diplomats. Social networks have become important channels of information in which many different influences play out in foreign affairs, allowing non-state actors to become involved in the communication between states.

What are the consequences of the digital revolution on diplomacy and related geopolitical challenges? Has cyberspace altered international relations? What, today, is the role of traditional diplomacy in foreign policy? Are expectations of transparency in government decision-making and widespread communication positive developments for diplomacy? How does public opinion shape diplomatic action?


The Embassy of France is pleased to invite you to our next French series panel discussion event which will be moderated by: 


John Hudson - National Security Reporter at The Washington Post



Moira Whelan- Founding Partner of BlueDot Strategies and Leader of the Digital Diplomacy Coalition team in D.C. Former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Digital Strategy at the US State Department 


Priya Doshi - Professorial Lecturer of Public Relations at American University's School of Communication


James Barbour - Director at Hill + Knowlton Strategies and former UK and European Union diplomat.
