King’s latest Cultural Enquiry report was launched yesterday: The art of soft power, by Dr Melissa Nisbett, a Senior Lecturer from CMCI, and Dr James Doeser, Research Associate for Culture. It is the culmination of research undertaken in the United Nations Office in Geneva over the last two years, exploring how diplomats use arts and culture in the service of soft power.
