Congress created the bipartisan ACPD in 1948 to appraise U.S. government activities intended to understand, inform, and influence foreign publics.  The Commission conducts research that provides honest assessments of public diplomacy efforts and disseminates findings through reports, white papers, and other publications.  It also holds public symposia that generate informed discussions on public diplomacy issues.  The Commission reports to the President, Secretary of State, and Congress.

For more information about the ACPD, its public meetings, congressionally mandated annual reports, and special reports, such as the 2023 Comprehensive Annual Report on Public Diplomacy and International Broadcasting, please visit the ACPD website.
