About this book

This book is a timely resource for the debate around “revitalizing” Canada’s public diplomacy, bringing together some of the top scholars of Canadian public diplomacy and practitioners past and present to build a one-stop shop for thinking on the past, present, and future of Canadian engagement with foreign publics.  The volume builds on Justin Trudeau’s media profile and the success of Canada’s image in 2016  but does not stop at the Niagara frontier post. Canada is a significant and under-discussed case of public diplomacy, and its experience as a middle power is more likely to be applicable to others than the experience of the usual case of the United States. Offering a comprehensive discussion of a major non-US case in contemporary public diplomacy and soft power, contributors also explore new angles of public diplomacy, including city, gift, art, and archaeological diplomacy as well as digital diplomacy.

Reviews

"COVID-19, the return of power politics, and the fragility of the global economy, all prove that Canada will need all the tools at its disposal to safeguard its interests in the years to come. The contributors to this book, who are among the leading experts of Canadian foreign policy, explain perfectly how Canadian public diplomacy is part of the equation. It is essential reading in these uncertain times." (Frédérick Gagnon, Raoul Dandurand Chair and Professor of Political Science, University of Québec in Montreal)
"Canada has long claimed creative diplomacy as its International vocation. In this essential collection, editors Michael Hawes and Nicholas Cull have made a valuable contribution. They have assembled an eclectic circle of scholars and practitioners who offer a timely and insightful exploration of the new currency of soft power and public diplomacy -- and how Canada is applying them, with mixed results, in the 21st century.” (Andrew Cohen, journalist and author of While Canada Slept: How We Lost Our Place in the World)
"This book provides a frank and comprehensive assessment of the contemporary Canadian experience of public diplomacy.  It is a must read to move Canada to a more ambitious, listening and insightful public diplomacy, inspired by the shortcomings of the Harper and Trudeau era.”(Roxeann Dubé, Dean and Director General, Canadian Foreign Service Institute (2016-2020))
