Lernergebnisse

The participants are able to review relevant literature, outline objectives for empirical research, create research models, conceptualize research designs, carry out empirical studies, present and discuss findings, and write research reports.

Inhalt

The research seminar is aiming at analysing how diplomats communicate with foreign stakeholders abroad. The empirical study will focus on examining how diplomatic missions arrange their external communication in host countries. In addition to analyzing websites, it will be particularly important to take into account respective social media activities. Upon carrying out a thorough literature review on soft power, public and cultural diplomacy, nation branding and international public relations, the students will develop a research model, which comprises message and content oriented factors affecting the success of governmental communication towards foreign publics. Subsequently, the participants will design and carry out empirical research evaluating diplomatic communication in the digital age.
