MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR 


The “third wave” of democratization in the late 1980s enabled the world’s citizens to participate politics as well as diplomacy. In line with this trend, there has been a paradigm shift from professional diplomacy to public diplomacy. The Korean Government is now actively involved in public diplomacy, having appointed its first Ambassador of Public Diplomacy and having established the Center for Public Diplomacy.

Ewha Womans University was the first in Korea to initiate both graduate and undergraduate courses in public diplomacy as a pioneer in academia. Ewha seeks to uphold the social responsibility of universities by developing a model of Korean public diplomacy through research, education and training, implementation, networking, and service-sharing. By doing so, Ewha aims to strengthen governmental and citizen capacity for building public diplomacy.
