Congress created the bipartisan ACPD in 1948 to appraise U.S. government activities intended to understand, inform, and influence foreign publics. The Commission conducts research that provides honest assessments of public diplomacy efforts, and disseminates findings through reports, white papers, and other publications. It also holds public symposia that generate informed discussions on public diplomacy issues. The Commission reports to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress.
For more information on the ACPD, its congressionally mandated annual reports, special reports such as the forthcoming report on DEIA and public diplomacy, or the upcoming public meeting, please visit the ACPD website.
