is a 3 year Erasmus+ KA2 (Strategic Partnerships) project developed by the MARPE Network. Our aim is to develop a European Higher Education curriculum in public, corporate and civic diplomacy.
Developing a European Body of Knowledge in Public, Corporate and Civic Diplomacy requires not only a transnational approach, but also a very diverse stakeholder map. A wide range of stakeholders will be engaged by the Strategic partners in this process including business, civil society, communication practitioners, associations, diplomats and other members from foreign affairs, academics from communication and other disciplines, as well as their students.
The need for developing a theoretical framework, a European body of knowledge and an epistemic community can be seen:
