The Group recommended a new strategic direction for public diplomacy efforts that matches the U.S. approach to national defense. These recommendations include a new operating process incorporating structural changes to the organization of the White House, the National Security Council interagency process, and the State Department; a presidential directive to all relevant governmental agencies emphasizing the importance of public diplomacy in advancing U.S. interests; additional staff with language skills dedicated to issues of the Arab and Muslim world; programs in support of English language training; and the expansion of the American Corners program and a new initiative called the American Knowledge Library.
