Public Diplomacy

In 2004, Rosen along with Charles Wolf Jr., completed their book Public Diplomacy: How to Think About It and Improve It. The authors propose a new approach to conceptualizing and conducting public diplomacy, defined as a process of informing and convincing foreign publics, especially those in the Muslim world, that the ideals Americans cherish-such as pluralism, freedom, women's rights, and democracy — are fundamental human values that will resonate in their own countries.

In one essay from the work, Lessons from King and Mandela, the authors shed light on America’s image abroad. The piece, published in late 2005 by Foreign Policy, tackles issues regarding the US’s faltering image problems and gives thought to the exportation of American public diplomacy.
