The 7th Edition of ASEF Public Diplomatic Training is available for application and the program is fully funded. Public diplomacy involves strategies and activities aimed at influencing both the foreign and domestic public. Further, it involves understanding their attitudes towards foreign policy and shaping their views on related issues. These efforts help establish a dialogue across borders that improves understanding of each other. It also shapes more positive perceptions of a country’s foreign policy priorities or an organization’s international relations.

The ASEF Public Diplomacy Training started in 2013 with the formulation of toolkits and training modules. The program will help participants gain insights into the current perceptions of diplomacy efforts in Asia and Europe. As well as they will learn how to incorporate public diplomacy skills into their daily work. The specific objectives are:

  • To enable participants to deepen their knowledge of public perceptions of Asia and Europe and how these impact the intent and design of their mission;
  • To provide practical skills to formulate, develop and deliver effective public diplomacy campaigns and programs to promote ASEM through real-life examples and case studies; and
  • To increase networking opportunity for ASEM diplomats, government officials and civil society actors to exchange best practices and promote a deeper understanding of Asia-Europe relations
