Wilton Park, UK, is one of the world's leading centres for discussion of key international policy challenges. From 12 to 14 October 2011, a Conference was held on "Putting the power in soft power?" and gathered some 50 leading opinion formers.
Claude Revel was a speaker on her matters of expertise.
Formally linked to the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), Wilton Park is an example of smart use of thought by policy makers: "With an emphasis on ways in which practitioners can further the deployment of soft power theory, the fifth Wilton Park roundtable meeting in the public diplomacy series considered how to meet the ‘Conversion Challenge’ of turning soft power assets into practical activity".
