  The role of cultural diplomacy as the soft but dynamic power cementing nations cannot be over emphasized. Through language, literature, music, dance, film, the visual arts, cuisine, we find access to cultures other than our own, to traditional techniques different from those we are familiar with, to belief systems that make a people what they are. And, in the process, often in an indescribable manner, we understand ourselves and our own culture better.
