Event description

Description

One of the most significant byproducts of globalization has been the extensive movement of people across borders - by choice, sheer necessity or forced removal. Compounded by the proliferation of communications technology, media faces new challenges in covering these complex crises and mediating public opinion in a rapidly developing landscape. In grappling with the realities of immigration, states are presented with the opportunity to advance their soft power through immigration policies. Some have succeeded; others have not. The 10th Annual APDS Conference will explore the increasing relevance of public diplomacy in border policy and global governance through an interactive, dialogue-driven forum.
