APDS was delighted to host Lebanese-American comedian Nemr Abou Nassar last week in a discussion about his work in public diplomacy. Nassar is in the middle of his first world tour, doing his part to facilitate relations between the Middle East and the rest of the world by revealing hilarious similarities and differences. He met with the Association of Public Diplomacy Scholars to talk about his adventures and the lessons he has learned along the way. He also gave examples of how his stand-up material builds mutual understanding across national and cultural boundaries.
