About
Public diplomacy is not a new concept in terms of its content. Throughout history, human beings, organised first as small groups, then as tribes, ethnic groups and finally as nations and nation-states, have been practising what we today call public diplomacy in order to gain influence over their interlocutors, whether they are known as enemies or friends, in line with their own interests. The main aim here is to disseminate information and develop mutual good relations by entering into dialogue with the interlocutors. Public diplomacy should not be confused with disinformation aimed at misleading.In the light of these views, KADAM was established on 4 October 2021 with the publication of its Regulation in the Official Gazette and started its activities with the opening panel held on 21 December 2021.


Mission
KADAM's mission is to provide a theoretical infrastructure of public diplomacy with an interdisciplinary understanding and to develop a Turkey-focused public diplomacy concept, and to operate in the field of practice through projects as well as academic studies for this purpose.

Vision
In accordance with its founding philosophy, KADAM aims to investigate the theoretical infrastructure of the field of Public Diplomacy within the field of international relations and its connection with other disciplines, to determine the theoretical formation in particular by starting from the general and to determine the characteristics of the activity architecture to be built on this infrastructure. In the final analysis, KADAM aims to contribute to the creation of a national public diplomacy concept by taking into account Turkey's unique conditions. Within this framework, appropriate strategic cooperation with relevant institutions and organisations in the international arena is envisaged.
