North American Cultural Diplomacy Initiative (NACDI)

North American Cultural Diplomacy Initiative (NACDI)

NACDI is a multi-disciplinary research network of academics, policymakers and practitioners in the field of critical cultural diplomacy (CD) from North America and beyond. 

Our interest lies in vitalizing the fullest range of core values and benefits of culture – not only culture as aesthetic pleasure and in its economic impact – to include social cohesion and resilience, education and self-development, democratic citizenship, collective expression and identity building for what a “critical cultural diplomacy” at the intersection of the local/global could be. By establishing a strategic network of networks, we aim to establish diplomacy as a critical practice and to raise the profile of diplomatic action as a valuable tool in fostering equitable global relations.
