Until recently, foreign policy, business and social issues occupied distinct spaces. They are now replaced by the convergence of dialogue, engagement and collaboration between government, business and civil society. Where once communications professionals were led by public relations, today public diplomacy is emerging through its interdisciplinary approach.
Public diplomacy links new media and PR more closely to foreign policy, business and social issues. While it can come in many forms, one of the ambitions of our exclusive, invite-only Dinner Series is to engage as wide a range of stakeholders as possible, across government, business, academia and civil society, as well as young entrepreneurs and rising stars, to help them learn more about India.
Our series provides attendees an unparalleled insight into Indian policy and business.
Our Dinner Series is typically once a month with a senior public policy or business figure, under Chatham House rule. Find out about membership options here. Payment is eligible for Gift Aid for UK taxpayers.
