Institute Of Public Diplomacy

MESSAGE OF THE CHAIRMAN

Strategic Power of the Era, Public Diplomacy...

There is a plain truth which is revealed by scientific studies made within Turkish Asian Center for Strategic Studies and by our efforts to understand and comprehend the developments both in Turkey and the world: We are facing a new international system which differentiate by its vision from the older one.

The function of this international system resembles neither bipolar world nor it has any connection with the unipolar world.

Multipolar new world order is based on communication, informatics, strategy and technology.

The economic, political and cultural consequences of globalisation have direct effects on this new international system.

Many instruments which were once appealed during the Cold War period and following the unipolar world order persist inefficient and  waste for this new international system.

In this new multipolar international system, public diplomacy stands out in order to increase the states’ efficiency, to achieve their aims and to implement the strategic vision that they have determined.

The “hard power” which was predominantly resorted by states in the unipolar world order and during the Cold War period has left its place to the gravity of “soft power” in the new international system. The states which are successful at utilizing their soft power in an efficient way gain more than those which were obtained by using hard power. Equally, they may mobilize and perpetuate long term collaborations.

The Institute of Public Diplomacy founded within TASAM aims at contributing the use of  actual potential which  Turkey possesses and the use of its soft power efficiently,  in the new international system. We believe that Turkey would achieve its objectives by appealing to the instruments of public diplomacy in a more healthy way as a state which plans firstly to become an efficient power of the region and later a global power center among the poles. Our institute would do the necessary scientific studies, would implement common projects with public bodies and NGOs to fulfill the purpose. Besides, the institute would substantiate international activities.

Together with contributing the Turkey’s objectives which seek to become the leader state in the region and a global power; our Institute would also endeavor for establishing global peace and collaboration. I wish our Institute would bring good luck and I invite the entire intellectual accumulation of our country to contribute this important duty.

Süleyman ŞENSOY

Chairman of TASAM



FROM THE DIRECTOR

Public Diplomacy, The Art of Winning Hearts...

It was Joseph Nye who brought in literature the notion of “soft power”. He also contributed to the better comprehension of the term with his other publications. Nye indicates that “if a state seeks to achieve its objectives on the world politics; there has to be other states that appreciate its values and that follow it.”

Soft power is in a sense the art of winning hearts and minds…

Its counterpart in international relations is Public Diplomacy…

The jurisdiction “If a state could not conduct its perception and its prestige; then it is conducted by others” is very significant.

As a country having high strategic value, it is important for Turkey to conduct its prestige; perception and image in increasing its efficiency in the international arena. Equally, the historical accumulation of Turkey, its civilization and its cultural values present serious opportunities to Turkey for having a word in the international arena.

The Institute of Public Diplomacy sets out for making the works which are necessary for supplying a basis in creating the potentials and opportunities of Turkey in the right place and in the right time.

It aims at providing the use of the instruments of public diplomacy in an efficient way by decision makers.

Our Institute would benefit firstly from precious accumulations of TASAM which is the leading think-tank of Turkey, and is going to open its doors to the different points of views.

We have no doubt that Turkey would near the goal of becoming a global power after having started to use public diplomacy efficiently.

Director of The Institute of Public Diplomacy


MISSION

The multipolar new world order is challenged by certain factors: The risks and ambiguities have increased; the areas for which global powers are in competition have multiplied; new actors have appeared on the scene and a new international arena has occurred. It has become, in this new international arena, impossible to behave, continue and get a result by utilizing the instruments and methods of the unipolar world order or Cold War period.

The new world order has its own conditions, norms, instruments and methods. The hard power policy of the Cold War has today left its place to the gravity of soft power. From now on, the persuasion has taken the first place, not the propaganda. As well as the diplomacy between states; the communication, interaction among public opinions; therefore “public to public diplomacy” has begun gaining importance.

In that kind of circumstances; the Institute of Public Diplomacy has appreciated as mission making studies which would provide Turkey’s accommodating with the new international arena and with the new world order; increasing its efficiency; introducing necessary methods and instruments which are necessary for reaching its regional and global objectives; its conducting the perception of itself and its composing the messages which would help build a true presentation.
