The  Wilson Center's  History and Public Policy Program is pleased to announce the publication of an Occasional Paper, “ A 21st  Century Vision for US Global Media,” by Wilson Center Senior Scholar A. Ross Johnson and R. Eugene Parta.  The  authors apply lessons from successful US international broadcasting during the Cold War to today’s  transformed geopolitical, media, and technological world. They suggest  a  restatement  of mission and corresponding organizational changes  to ensure that  international broadcasting  remains an  effective instrument of US soft power –  one supporting freedom and democracy abroad in the national interest.
