Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's a big push on for a renewal of public diplomacy here in the US, possibly to bring back the USIA in some form or other. The argument goes that the intentions of the US are misunderstood, and that we need to get our voice out there.

In case you're wondering, the Atlantic Community is based in Berlin and claim to be dedicated to the same thing in Germany that I'd like to see done in the US: raising the level of debate in foreign policy, as well as to enhance Germany's prescence abroad. Which I have absolutely no objection to.

The Atlantic Community is a open access project (I'm signed up there though I have never contributed) of the Atlantic Initiative, whose board members are listed here. I don't know these people, so I've no idea of any overarching agenda. Can anyone help me out with this?
