In the face of increasing global diplomacy challenges and opportunities, cultural diplomacy (also known as public diplomacy or a dimension of it in a number of countries) is the development and use of media, arts, and cultural assets in mutually beneficial international political, social, economic, and educational exchanges. The continued absence of arts and culture in public policy discussions and actions, as well as the fragmentation of dialogue within different arts and humanities subgroups, contribute to the continued marginalization of culture and the underappreciation of its vital role in the strengthening of international relations. The Aspen Cultural Diplomacy Forum is an example of an independent outlet that fosters a global and multidisciplinary dialogue of diverse cultural and public diplomacy practitioners.
