Public Diplomacy

The Directorate-General for Communication and Diplomatic Information is responsible for the public and digital diplomacy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.

Public diplomacy, understood as that aimed at public opinion, the business world and civil society in general, has the objectives of projecting our values and our positions beyond our borders. All foreign policy in the 21st century requires instruments that allow us to maintain permanent contact with a growing number of stakeholders on the international stage. Companies, cultural and scientific institutions, social groups and individuals must be increasingly taken into account in the current context. Thanks to public diplomacy, we can project more efficiently and with a greater scope the reality of our country and explain our positions in relation to the principal international questions and the reasoning that underpins our main initiatives in foreign policy to a vast audience.


The Spanish public diplomacy model incorporates the activity of various institutions linked with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
