U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy: Reports

The President, Secretary of State, the Congress, and the American public merit informed, serious, and timely appraisals and recommendations of government activities that intend to understand, inform, and influence global audiences. The ACPD will provide frequent and in-depth information to better serve and empower those that formulate, authorize, fund, and engage in these activities.

Below are nearly all of the reports the ACPD has published since 1949. We continue to locate and digitize the reports from 1973-1988. This page will also be updated as new working papers and reports are released.
