Digital Diplomacy in a Turbulent World

Explaining the Constitutive Effects of Digital Media on Diplomatic Norms and Practices

Funding agency: Marianne och Marcus Wallenberg Foundation

The research team consists of an interdisciplinary group of scholars with specialisation in strategic communication, political science, peace studies, visual politics, and international relations theory. The overarching aim of this project is to explain the power of digital media in contemporary diplomatic statecraft and practice. With the arrival of digital media, it both enables and transforms diplomatic practices by introducing new tools and commmunication channels. Yet, there is limited scholarship that specifically examines the impact and effects of digital diplomacy on international negotiation and peacemaking. In this projecct, these transformative processes are examined in three distinct, but overlapping empirical areas:

  • Diplomatic communication and peace diplomacy
  • Celebrity diplomacy
  • Public diplomacy
