This submission seeks to contribute, through the Senate Inquiry into the Nature and Conduct of Australia’s Public Diplomacy, to the development of a possible framework for Australian participants in the arena of public diplomacy – in the context of accelerated processes of diplomacy. In doing so it will address the following questions: In what ways should public diplomacy be driven by the state? Are there possible areas for partnership in public diplomacy with the public sector by other sectors? Before developing and discussing a framework this submission engages briefly with the geopolitical tectonic shifts and the climate of globalisation that have altered diplomacy in the second half of the 20th Century.
