Public Relations is concerned with the theory and practice of communication between organizations and specified publics.
Members are concerned with developing a greater understanding of the theoretic basis for effective communication through both laboratory and practice of communication between organizations and specified publics. Members have research interests in such issues as target group analysis, internal/external communication integration, systems analysis and channel effectiveness. At the same time the Division is concerned with the application of theoretic advances for the solution of pragmatic public relations problems.
Members share communication techniques developed to accomplish specific Public Relations goals of consultant clients, or corporate employers. The Division goals include the development of a consulting network, a long range research program and investigation into the issues of public relations education accreditation and curriculum development.

Call For Papers
International conference BCNmeetingPR#6 Barcelona International PR 2016 Conference Barcelona,
28 and 29 June 2016
We are pleased to announce that Barcelona International PR Meeting #6 will take place next 28 and 29 June 2016 in Barcelona. The sixth edition of the conference is entitled Developing Public Relations:
Entertainment, Ethics, Innovation, Teaching, and Territories and we warmly invite you to attend.
In a crowded promotional culture, although the e-word least mentioned is extinction, no field can rest on its laurels. Writers have proclaimed the death, or at least the end of, both Advertising and Marketing.
Neither has yet happened but to secure a future, PR must keep developing. Accordingly, we suggest four areas for consideration and add some questions and suggestions below, As usual, we stress these are NOT put forward as any kind of definitive list - but as prompts for a spread of responses: entertainment, ethics ,innovation ,teaching and territories.
In line with our consistent practice as conference organisers, we invite a wide range of contributions and welcome any proposals that help explore the spectrum of concerns of developing contemporary PR. We hope to offer publishing opportunities and will keep you in touch with our progress.
