Global public diplomacy

Aksoy, Vildan
This thesis argues that states pursue public diplomacy policies at the national and global levels since they seek to achieve their own diverse self-interests regarding their foreign policy activities. In order to discuss this argument, the thesis seeks to explore various cases in which public diplomacy is practiced differently. In this respect, the cases of the United States of America, Britain, China and Turkey have been analyzed. The thesis demonstrates that states increasingly tend to use public diplomacy as a foreign policy tool in order to promote their national interests especially when they have to justify their foreign policy activities. This thesis has six main chapters. The first chapter is the introduction. In each of the following chapters, the cases of the US, Britain, China and Turkey are discussed in relation to their public diplomacy, respectively. And, finally the sixth chapter is the conclusion
