Catalonia, public diplomacy, and sub-state ambitions discussed at Elliott School

Catalonia panel discussion
March 17, 2015

On March 16, IPDGC hosted two panel discussions on Catalonia, public diplomacy, and sub-state ambitions on the global stage. Held in Lindner Commons of the Elliott School of International Affairs, the event was hosted in collaboration with the Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia, a public-private partnership established to "foster dialogue and relationships between the citizens of Catalonia and the world."

The first panel featured academics of international relations, political science, and international law for a discussion on the political future of Catalonia. The second panel brought experts in public diplomacy, including IPDGC director, Sean Aday; GW Professor of Practice, PJ Crowley; Secretary General of the Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia, Albert Royo; and former ambassador of Mexico to the U.S., Arturo Sarukhan to discuss the role of public diplomacy in conducting contemporary international relations.
