International Public Diplomacy and the San Diego Diplomacy Council

Julie Moyes and Fabienne Perlov

In contrast to the military, the U.S. State Department plays a major role in building worldwide relationships, which lay the ground for the trust required to advance U.S. foreign-policy goals. This is sometimes referred to as “Soft Power.” Julie Moyes will introduce the soft-power tools that the State Department uses, the most impressive of which is the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). Fabienne Perlov will focus on the work of the San Diego Diplomacy Council (SDDC), which implements the IVLP program, and numerous other forums to bring people of the world together with the people of San Diego.

Instructor: Julie Moyes retired as a U.S. Department of State Foreign Service Officer after 32 years of service. She served as Consul General in Edinburgh, as the Chargé d’Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in the Hague, and in several other foreign and U.S. posts. Her last job was training diplomats how to effectively use soft power to advance U.S. foreign-policy objectives.

Fabienne Perlov is the current Executive Director of the San Diego Diplomacy Council. She has years of experience in public diplomacy, through international development and refugee protection organizations in the United States and foreign countries. She holds an MA in International Development Studies.
