PD Content

Our team of writers, editors, graphic designers, and video producers create and curate print and digital products that help U.S. Embassies start, enrich, and sustain conversations with foreign audiences.

IIP creates and curates content that provides context and information on U.S. foreign policy topics in a variety of formats ranging from video to print publications to audio books, reaching more than billion people a year. Much of this content, along with transcripts of the Secretary’s and President’s speeches, is available to embassies in multiple languages.

IIP produces more than 125 video products each year, including the popular ambassador series, which is used to introduce newly appointed diplomats to foreign audiences prior to their in-country arrival. In addition, the video group acquires independently produced films to engage global audiences.

IIP recruits more than 650 speakers annually, including Supreme Court justices, renowned authors, innovators, scholars, entrepreneurs, journalists, and sports figures who connect directly with more than 160,000 people in local markets via in-country and virtual events, to discuss topics of strategic importance.
