Foreign News Coverage and Diplomacy

Foreign correspondents have played a crucial role in world events ranging from the Vietnam War to the fall of the Berlin Wall, but their role continues to evolve as news organizations adapt their business models to the technological developments of the twenty-first century. Jack Hamilton, longtime journalist, scholar, and public servant, discussed the changing role of foreign correspondents in the era of social media, widespread newspaper bankruptcy, and public diplomacy.
This event was sponsored by the Berkley Center, Institute for the Study of Diplomacy, and Global Human Development Program.
