Sigur Center visiting scholar, Ke-ming Yen will present his research findings on the topic of "Evaluation of China's Public Diplomacy in the United States." To match its newly acquired major power status, China is trying to use public diplomacy to present itself as a responsible, upstanding nation. Mr. Yen's research will evaluate the effects of China's public diplomacy in the United States and argue that due to differences in political systems and values, China's public diplomacy has only limited success in the U.S.
Ke-ming (Calvin) Yen is Director General on Home Assignment at the Foreign Service Institute, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in Taiwan. Prior to his current post, he was Director General at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Melbourne, Australia.
