International Organisations

Public diplomacy: what it is and how to do it.

Corporate Author:
United Nations Institute for Training and Research
Author:
Alan Hunt

Efforts by governments to influence the public in other countries have existed for some time. Though the concept of public diplomacy emerged in the 1960s, the advent of ICT has given powerful impetus to this particular way of conducting international relations. Increasingly, governments lost their quasi monopoly on the control of information to the benefit of public opinion and non-state actors. Who, then, does public diplomacy belong to? How is the task divided? What are the responsibilities of government officials? What is the role of non-state actors? How can one measure the power of the media? This publication is designed for diplomats but is also a must-have for anyone keen to explore this area in depth.

World humanitarian data and trends 2015. 2016 ed.

Corporate Author:
United Nations. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs

OCHA's annual World Humanitarian Data and Trends highlights major trends in the nature of humanitarian crises, their causes and drivers, and participation in crisis prevention, response and recovery. Beyond providing statistics, the trend analysis shows how the humanitarian landscape is evolving and how the humanitarian system can be more effective in a rapidly changing world. Data used in the report comes from a variety of sources: collaborative partners - such as the Qatar Computing Research Institute, IDMC and Development Initiatives - as well as from organizations and publications with subject-matter expertise: The World Bank, UNHCR, Heidelberg Institute and UNDP among others. Highlights for 2015 include case studies on long-term trend analysis of the humanitarian context in terms of conflicts and natural disasters, the humanitarian footprint in the Middle East, coordination of online volunteers during the Ebola response and the anatomy of cycles of displacement. The report aims to provide a "one-stop" shop for policy makers, researchers and humanitarian practitioners to have an evidence-base and advocacy tools for humanitarian assistance. Overall, this report is one part of OCHA's efforts to improve data and analysis on humanitarian situations worldwide.
