Public Diplomacy and the Situation in Libya

by leah on April 4, 2011

I’m in a Public Diplomacy class at Hopkins this semester. Here is my presentation, theoretically as a diplomat who needs to present the issue to a group of foreign nationals. I am explaining how the events transpired and our 2 key reasons for action.

(Update: This would be a back up tool to a presentation, not a stand-alone document. The key in this is to demonstrate how the events unfolded in such a unique way that they led the US to get involved, as President Obama argued. Also, it’s meant to be a presentation, so it reads/looks better in full screen mode.)


Cute presentation style but all you did was review events and then quote President Obama. That’s not much of a public diplomacy program. No real analysis or argument directed at foreign audiences.

Reply: Thanks. I probably should have made this clear, but the public diplomacy argument is meant to be made (and the key themes drawn out) in a speech, with this as a back up tool.

I feel you are well interested in what is going on in Libya, I just need the information of what kind of diplomacy was and has been applied to Libya by international community. Can you briefly provide the info to my mail address?
