The USC Center on Public Diplomacy is pleased to present a book talk with CPD Director, Philip Seib, on his recently published book, "Real-Time Diplomacy: Politics and Power in the Social Media Era."

In "Real-Time Diplomacy", Seib tackles a vital question: How can any policymaker keep afloat in the flood of information coming from a vast number of sources? And, as the events of 2011 illustrate, power can emanate from the public, and so developing and maintaining ties with publics around the world is an essential element of foreign policy. This talk will offer insights into one of the most important challenges of the 21st century: How can policymakers shift away from being mere spectators and address the political realities of a social-media-oriented society? In addition, what does this mean for the public diplomacy practitioner?

Books will be available for purchase at this event.
