Future Government Insights Series 3 - Workshop

27 April 2022

Future Government Insights Series Workshops

 The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown governments and economies across the world into crisis management mode. We are now moving into year two of this crisis. This series of workshops gives an overview of the methods governments of the future can better prepare themselves to become more agile. Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG) is the first research and teaching institution focusing on public policy and effective governance in the Arab world and a part of the Government of Dubai. MBRSG is a member of the Principles of Responsible Management Education, an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact and we fall under the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), “Empowering Communities” pillar.

 Our faculty will provide you with a glimpse into the MBRSG Future Government programs, which are programs specially designed for employees with work experience and careers focused in the public sector or in large organizations focusing on delivery of public value.  All our Future Government programs are at the Master’s level and are accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the Ministry of Education's Higher Education Affairs Division in the United Arab Emirates. 

Digitalization of Soft Power: Issues and Perspectives
Date: April 20th 2022
Time: 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Speaker: Dr. Racquel Warner, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator for Master of Public Administration at MBRSG

The global spread of Internet technologies has led society down a pathway of digitalization which is both a process and a result. In the field of public management, digitalization is forcing civil service leaders and employees to rethink core issues of governance, networking, and international policy. The nexus of governance, international policy and information technology has reshaped the practice of soft power with the emergence of a practice known as of “digital diplomacy.” As a foreign policy instrument, “digital diplomacy” implies flexible forms of interaction among state and non-state actors using new forms of mass communication and network technologies with the aim of influencing the public opinion on critical issues and promoting specific ideological or political perspectives. It has also been suggested by researchers that the growth of a country’s “soft power” correlates with the introduction of digitalization tools.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explore the growth of digital diplomacy in modern society
  2. Determine the influence of digital diplomacy on the local and global agenda
  3. Identify the consequences of digital diplomacy on governments

Several subjects linked with governance and public policy are explored in the Future Insights series, ranging from the role of government to the organization and management of government to the purpose, design, and delivery of public services, including stakeholder analysis and theory of change.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Better understand how public policy is made.
  2. Gain an understanding of the various stages of public policy
  3. Advance an understanding of the importance of stakeholder analysis and theory of change
