Abstract:

Foreign correspondents shape the image of a country to the eyes of foreign audiences every day through their reporting. Despite this, their role tends to be neglected by both policy-makers and researchers.
By focusing on the UK as a case study, this paper addresses a gap in public diplomacy literature by illuminating the communication processes through which narratives of power and identity are both constructed and projected to foreign publics through journalists. It is based on interviews with foreign correspondents in London and the International Media Officers at the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The study analyzed, on the one hand, the impact of new media on the correspondents’ reporting routines, particularly on their micro-interactions with sources, editors, members of the public, and other journalists. It also focused on the effects that such interactions—spanning face-to-face real world contacts and virtual exchanges—have on the stories they produce. On the other hand it compared the “theory” of dealing with foreign correspondents in public diplomacy official reports to the practice of the International Media Officers.
The paper points to the benefits of developing a research agenda that brings together international communications, news sociology, and international relations. This can help overcome the outdated conceptualizations of public diplomacy that revolve around the idea of “sending a message” and support, instead, forms of engagement fit for the twenty-first century.
