Palgrave Communications – the fully open access journal published by Palgrave Macmillan – is pleased to announce the launch of the special issue, Perspectives on Soft Power.
In the late 1980s American political scientist Joseph Nye coined the term ‘soft power’ to describe the ability of states to obtain preferred outcomes by attraction rather than coercion or payment.
This article series which includes a personal reflection from Prof Nye, explores all aspects of soft power, from approaches to framing foreign-policy agendas, to the strategies that countries use to persuade and elicit positive attraction in order to obtain preferred outcomes.
Authors who would like to propose a paper for publication in this rolling collection should contact the editorial office.
