Abstract:

The U.S. Department of State is challenged to increase shared interests with Arab and Muslim publics abroad and to improve their receptivity to U.S. foreign policy and action. “Diaspora diplomacy,” or “public diplomacy at home,” is a source of cross-cultural experience critical for shaping credible policy and programs and also for cost-sharing.

Domestic diplomatic engagement with diaspora organizations is an example of the shift from government to cross-sector governance, across government, civil society and the private sector. In this shift, public diplomacy transpires increasingly through transnational and global networks than through hierarchies. In the proposed paper, I develop a conceptual framework for collaborative, cross-sector governance of U.S. public diplomacy using the example of diaspora diplomacy toward Lebanon.

I explore the quality of engagement with Lebanese American civil society, in comparison to collaborative cross-sector governance as framed in public administration, public diplomacy and diaspora studies. I also draw on organizational sensemaking theory and practice, to sharpen understanding of the identity-making processes that govern the relationships, power and action-taking among public diplomacy personnel, Congressional committee staff and diasporans. Finally, I present empirical evidence from interviews and participant-observation.
