The Art of Soft Power: A Study of Cultural Diplomacy at the UN Office in Geneva is based on research report on cultural diplomacy. It reveals how and why art
is deployed by diplomatic missions alongside the formal business of the United Nations. It displaces existing assumptions and clarifies two distinct intentions: reaching out and standing out. It shows how diplomats use art and culture in the service of soft power.
