Public Diplomacy/Soft Power Papers from ISA 2011

I’m flying back from Montreal today.  As well as pre-conference working group on public diplomacy there is a growing interest in PD.  Over the next few days I will post some comments and thoughts on the state of the field.  In the mean time I’m posting links to a selection of papers on PD and related topics that have been posted to the online conference archive.  This list isn’t complete and I will add to it in due course.  There are a number of interesting papers that haven’t been posted yet and some of the most interesting discussions occurred in roundtables that don’t require written papers.

Note – I’ve put these up quickly and I haven’t had a chance to check all the links yet – for links that take you to a page where you can click to view online you can go to the link to Allacademic at the bottom of the page and get a pdf.
