Analysis of international public opinion

DIPLOCAT, listens to what international public opinion is saying about Catalonia and what issues are being discussed the most around the world.

As Nicholas J. Cull, professor and expert in public diplomacy at the University of Southern California, says, "the basis of sound public diplomacy has always been listening, which means interacting with the foreign public to get information, analyse it and incorporate it into decision-making and avenues of action".

In order to listen to what international public opinion is saying about Catalonia, DIPLOCAT periodically undertakes three kinds of actions:

Opinion surveys

Social networks monitoring

The global reports include all the threads about Catalonia and the members of the board of DIPLOCAT in social networks, forums and open blogs, no matter the topic. The specific reports exclude the threads about politics and sports, which are the most abundant when talking about Catalonia at an international level. From January 2021 on, they also exclude the threads about covid19 and the book "Homage to Catalonia" by George Orwell. Hence, the specific report allows a detailed approach.

DIPLOCAT reports the results to the consortium members so they can use this information in the way that best suits their agendas and keep it in mind in their international activities. At the same time, DIPLOCAT also uses this information to design more efficient strategies and thus engage in constructive dialogue with international public opinion.
