One of the themes of Cultural Diplomacy
is the shift of focus in how nations and groups relate to each other. First, governments spoke behind closed doors - the few to the few. Then they came to realise the importance of speaking to wider publics - the few to the many. Now, it is imperative that we understand and accommodate the reality that global relations are dominated and by the communication of the many to the many.
In this light, it is nice to see that discussion of cultural diplomacy has been extended to the pages of Wikipedia
. We are thankful to Simeon Adebolu
, both for contributing to the discussion on Wikepedia, and for drawing it to our attention.
