In This Chapter

  • Public diplomacy evaluation begins with identifying the objectives it is designed to achieve to lay the foundation for foreign policy goals.

  • Output evaluation is the relatively easier first step to measure how actual products, activities, and messages are created as a result of public diplomacy projects.

  • Outcome evaluation helps measure whether public diplomacy activities contributed to producing the expected outcomes.

  • Changed perceptions and stronger relationships are connected to behavioural outcomes.

  • Logic models help connect public diplomacy projects’ input, output, outcome, and impact.
