CHAPTER 1 – STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION OVERVIEW,
DEFINITION AND CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK

OVERVIEW

“The counterinsurgent is tied to his responsibility and his past, and for him, facts speak louder than words.
11
He is judged on what he does, not on what he says.”
— Counterinsurgency Warfare: Theory and Practice

The perception of strategic communication is an often-discussed subject matter


within government policy circles and at all levels of professional military education.
Doctrinal explanations are continually updated and refined to the point that few appear
to agree upon the role that strategic communication should play as either a diplomatic
function, an aspect of military operational planning, or a process to be executed in the
course of national policy. As a result of the US Defense Science Board’s Study,
strategic communication is made up of four core instruments. These are: public
diplomacy, public affairs, international broadcasting, and military information
operations.22 There are, however, a set of key points that all sides seem to agree
upon.

The first is that effective strategic communication is vital to winning the


“information war.” Traditional acumen suggests that this is undoubtedly true, and the
recognition that our struggle against violent extremism is a “war of ideas” seems to be
almost universally accepted.

The second point is that strategic communication involves the bigger effects of
what a given entity—be it a nation, a people; an organization, or even an individual—
says and does in pursuit of a goal. This may seem overly extensive, but it is important
to note that the most substantive discussions of strategic communication center on
closing what is sometimes called the “say-do gap.” That is, aligning the way a body
explains, justifies, frames or mitigates its actions relative to the actions themselves in
the face of public scrutiny.

For our purposes as the counterinsurgent force, we will respect it as a


complete imperative that our actions are fully harmonious with the ideals that
we advocate. There can be no “gap” between what we say and what we do.

Leaders must comprehend the importance of this last statement; it is the


keystone of our communication efforts. As the above passage from
Counterinsurgency Warfare: Theory and Practice makes clear, we have the
responsibility as the counterinsurgent to “walk the walk” as well as we “talk the talk.”
Our main concerns and values must be displayed in every deed, and reflected in the

theater during WWII and served in Algeria from 1956 to 1958. The book’s foreword states that his
counterinsurgency precepts are “drawn mainly on observations and reflections derived from
experience in China, Greece, Southeast Asia and Algeria.” vi.

actions of every man and woman serving in the AFP throughout the Internal Security
Operations.

What you will find here is far more than a collection of talking points or a series
of taskings but sample concept/theme projects not only for the Armed Forces of the
Philippines but as well as the spectrum on all Public Diplomacy, Public Affairs and
even International Broadcasting. The doctrinal information functions of these entire
spectrums on Information certainly serve to support select aspects of our strategic
communication initiatives, but they are not the main effort. Rather, this plan places
the emphasis on the conduct of every involve and concern agency or
organizational units to demonstrate who we are, what we do, and what we stand
for. This point is critical to the ultimate success of the plan.

What makes the plan actionable, however, is comprehensive command


involvement. Soldiers cannot be expected to spontaneously embrace the concepts
outlined herein when little, if any, of their training has prepared them. Consequently, it
is highly recommended that the execution of this Strategic Communication Plan as a
command priority, and its stewardship the duty of every commander in the AFP.

This plan has no end date; it continues in effect so long as its objectives remain
unchanged. While it is expected that any alteration to the Command Guidance,
particularly by the President of the Philippines and authorities under the Principle of
the Chain of Command would require shifts in communication themes, the larger
purpose of our Strategic Communication Plan is enduring.

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK
The US Defense Science Board (DSB) described strategic communication as
instruments that governments use to “understand global audiences and cultures,
engage in a dialogue of ideas between people and institutions, advise policymakers,
diplomats and military leaders on the public implications of policy choices, and
influence attitudes and behavior through communication strategies.”3 The DSB
concluded that strategic communication is made up of four core instruments. These
are: public diplomacy, public affairs, international broadcasting, and military
information operations.4

PUBLIC DIPLOMACY

In terms of public diplomacy, the DSB explained that it is necessary to build


long-term relationships through the exchange of people and ideas, in order to increase
receptivity to the nation’s culture, values and policies. The DSB noted the importance
of seeking to directly influence foreign governments, which is a type of strategic
communication that is being explored. Public diplomacy was the focal point of a
strategic task in the highest level in trying to emphasize the imperativeness of public
support when implicating strategies, policies, or diplomatic initiatives. The ultimate
goal was to increase the understanding of Philippines policies, values and interests
and to counter anti-government sentiment and misinformation about the Philippines
anti-insurgency campaign in both national and global environment.5

Since the conception of the National Military Strategy, the government lacked
an interagency public diplomacy strategy to guide the activities of disparate agencies,
and it continues to lack this strategy.63 It is also noted that the Philippine Government
did not have a strategy to integrate its diverse public diplomacy activities and those
efforts generally lacked important strategic communication elements found in the
private sector. These elements included having core messages, segmenting target audiences,
using in-depth research and analysis to monitor and evaluate results, and finally, an integrated
communication plan to bring all these elements together.7 Additionally, our government didn’t
develop a “strategic communications roadmap.” This strategic communications
roadmap is very essential in order for us to at least follow through on our mission to
“create a culture” that sees strategic communications as information operations
including public diplomacy.84

PUBLIC AFFAIRS

The people who carry out strategic communication objectives in government


agencies are typically the public affairs staffs in their respective communications
offices. Public affairs officers perform a wide range of functions from internal
communication to media relations, congressional liaison and partnership management
with international and domestic counterterrorism partners.95 These public affairs
officers address communications activities designed to inform the media. In a world of
global media outlets with global audiences, their messages reach around the world. It
is the public affairs officer’s job to transmit news and information programs to global
audiences using radio, satellite television, and the Internet. Government’s public
affairs officers must also be confident using multimedia production, opinion and media
surveys, information technologies, and measuring the influence of communications
overseas.

Yet, there are some differences between influencing and educating local people
versus a foreign audience. According to the US Department of Defense, information
operations can only be used on a foreign audience. This is a term used to describe
the integrated employment of electronic warfare, which is a part of “military activities
that use selected information and indicators to influence the attitude and behavior of
foreign governments, organizations, groups, and individuals in support of military and
national security objectives.”106

By incorporating this definition, strategic communication can also be described


as integrated and coordinated themes and messages that advance our interests and
policies supported by public diplomacy, public affairs, international broadcasting and
military information operations in concert with other instruments of national power.117
These strategic communication practices can only be efficient and successful if the
Philippine Government’s level of credibility in the counter-insurgency campaign can be
trusted. Over the years the Philippines experimented with different ways to conduct
ISO depending on the administration and situation at the time. By examining these
systems, it is easier to see why some tactics were sustainable and others were not.

INTERNATIONAL BROADCASTING12

International broadcasting is broadcasting that is deliberately aimed at a foreign,


rather than a domestic, audience. It usually is broadcast by means of long wave,
medium wave, or short wave radio, but in recent years has also used direct satellite
broadcasting and the Internet as means of reaching audiences.

Although radio and television programs do travel outside national borders, in


many cases reception by foreigners is accidental. However, for purposes of
propaganda, transmitting religious beliefs, keeping in touch with colonies or
expatriates, education, improving trade, increasing national prestige, or promoting
tourism and goodwill, broadcasting services have operated external services since the
1920s.

Broadcasters in one country have several reasons to reach out to an audience


in other countries. One clear reason is for ideological, or propaganda reasons. Many
government-owned stations portray their nation in a positive, non-threatening way.
This could be to encourage business investment and/or tourism to the nation. Another
reason is to combat a negative image produced by other nations or internal dissidents,
or insurgents. Radio RSA, the broadcasting arm of the apartheid South African
government, is an example of this. A third reason is to promote the ideology of the
broadcaster. For example, a program on Radio Moscow from the 1960s to the 1980s
was, “What is Communism?”

INFORMATION OPERATIONS138

Information operations are the way the Military will prepare and execute
knowledge-based warfare across the full range of military operations. Information
operations are essential to winning the information war on the future battlefield, and
Information and Electronic Warfare (IEW) is the key to successful information
operations. Information operations enable, enhance, and protect the commander's
decision making cycle while influencing opponents. This is accomplished through
effective intelligence, battle command, and C²W operations as an integral part of joint,
combined, or interagency operations. Battle command is about imposing control on
the compressed dimensions of battle space by achieving and sustaining a high tempo
of operations, overwhelming lethality, and superior survivability. Supporting battle
command, information operations are conducted across the full range of military
operations.

In peacetime, information operations are conducted at various levels of


intensity against assorted adversaries. In OOTW situations where restraint is often
required, nonlethal C²W is used to bring about a desired response from threat forces.
In cases where the use of force is unavoidable, all elements of information operations
are employed in concert to best achieve the objective. The effective pairing of the
attack means with the information operation's targets is largely dependent on
understanding and predicting the impact of the targeting effort on the adversary's
decision making process.

CHAPTER 2 – STRATEGY AND CONPLAN

MISSION AND PRIORITIES


The strength, success and security of the Philippines Counter-Insurgency
Campaign rest on our commitment to certain fundamental values and principles.
These values gave birth to our nation, and govern our actions in the world. We believe
all individuals, men and women, are equal and entitled to basic human rights,
including freedom of speech, worship and political participation. While the forms of
government will vary, we believe all people deserve to live in just societies that protect
individual and common rights, fight corruption and are governed by the rule of law.
Across the world, our country seeks to work with other governments and nations in a
spirit of partnership that supports human dignity and fosters peace and progress.

Given the present Philippine security environment, the following national


military objectives149 were identified:

1. Decisively defeat all armed internal security threats;


2. Maintain territorial integrity and defend the national territory;
3. Protect the EEZ;
4. Contribute to regional peace and stability; and
5. Support and assist lead government agencies within the AFP’s capabilities
as directed by national authorities in the following areas:
• Conduct of socio-politico-economic development programs;
• Response to national emergencies; and
• Enforcement of maritime laws

Strategic communication should always strive to support our nation’s


fundamental values and national security objectives. All communication and public
diplomacy activities should:

• Underscore our commitment to freedom, human rights and the dignity


and equality of every human being;
• Reach out to those who share our ideals;
• Support those who struggle for freedom and democracy; and
• Counter those who espouse ideologies of hate and oppression.

STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

The Philippine Government seeks to associate with nations and peoples across
the world in ways that result in an improved life for all of our citizens. As a multicultural
nation founded by immigrants, our government respects people of different cultures,
backgrounds, ideologies and faiths. We seek to be a partner for progress, prosperity
and peace around the world.

We have determined three strategic objectives to govern Philippine Strategic


Communication with intended target audiences:

I. Our Government must present a positive image/foresight of hope and


opportunity for every Filipino that is entrenched in our most fundamental values

These values include our deep conviction for freedom, and the dignity and
equality of every person. We believe all people merit to live in just societies that are
governed by the rule of law and free from corruption or intimidation. We believe
people should be able to verbalize their minds, remonstrate peacefully, worship freely
and take part in choosing their government. We want all people, boys and girls, to be
educated, because we know education expands opportunity and we believe those
who are educated are more likely to be responsible citizens, tolerant and respectful of
each other’s differences. We want to spread out the circle of prosperity so that people
throughout the world can earn a living and afford for their families

II. With our allies, we seek to segregate and marginalize vehement extremists
(CPP/NPA/NDF) who impend the freedom and peace sought by civilized people
of every nation, culture and faith.

We can attain this goal by:

• Advocating good governance as a path to a positive future, in secure and


pluralistic societies;

• Isolating and discrediting CPP/NPA leaders, facilitators, and organizations;

• De-legitimizing communist terror as an acceptable tactic to achieve political


ends; and

III. Our Government must work to nurture common interests and values
between Filipinos and peoples of different countries, ideologies, cultures and
faiths across the world.

Far more unites us as human beings than divides us. Especially at a time of
war and common threats, our government must actively nurture common interests and
values. We have shared interests in expanding economic opportunity, promoting
peaceful resolution of conflicts, enhancing scientific collaboration, fighting diseases
that respect no border, and protecting our common environment. A cornerstone of
Philippine policy and public diplomacy must be to identify, highlight and nurture
common interests and values.

SEMINAR ALPHA

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES
Our enemy, the NPA (CPP/NDF) is doing its best to defeat the Philippine
Government by using the Soft Force, which is to show to the public and the whole
world that they are a strong force to reckon with. Hence Filipinos must make up their
mind in supporting the NPA while they continue to distance themselves from the
control of the democratic government of the Republic of the Philippines. To achieve
this objective, the NPA continue to send messages to their target audience (within the
Philippines and outside the Philippines) using personal contact with the people in the
country in a limited coverage (which is tactical & operational communication) and
using email and postal service (include radio and television) to target a wider area and
a larger number of people that spans the whole world which is done through strategic
communication.

The CPP/NPA/NDF had taken advantage of Information Technology Revolution


whereby they have put up hundreds of email websites / email blogs and newsletters
that have enhanced their political and militant/armed efforts in the country that is
backed by international political organizations. Hence strategic communications is Soft
Power in action and had helped the rebel organization in achieving higher political
recognition locally and internationally in the furtherance of its political aims.

We have determined three specific objectives to further narrow down the


Strategic objectives with intended target audiences:

1. Change the belief/ attitude/ thinking/ outlook/ mind-set of the NPA from that
of being war-like against the Government of the Republic of the Philippines and the
AFP to that of being supportive, cooperative, obedient, and law abiding citizen.

2. Change the belief / attitude / thinking / outlook / mind-set of the Filipino


citizens and other foreign citizens staying or living in the country who are supportive,
cooperative and sympathetic to the New People’s Army to that of becoming its enemy
and further motivate them to become supportive, cooperative, and sympathetic to the
constituted government of the Philippines as well as with the AFP

3. Change the belief / attitude / thinking / outlook / mind-set of the citizens of


other countries (foreign countries, especially those in Europe and Scandinavian
Countries that have strong and influential Communist Parties) who provide material
and financial support and assistance to the New People’s Army to that of a “guidance
councilor” or a “change agent” who will motivate and convince the NPA to lay down
their arms and take advantage of the peace process and amnesty program offered by
the Philippine Government towards unity and peaceful existence.

4. Change the belief / attitude / thinking / outlook / mind-set of the leadership of


large business corporations / multi-national corporations / and non-governmental
organizations operating in the Philippines who provide moral, material and financial
support to the New People’s Army to that of a “change agent” or an “advocate of
peace, cooperation, and unity” in favor of the Philippine government, the AFP, and
majority of the Filipino people towards the attainment of absolute peace and
sustainable development.

STRATEGIC AUDIENCES

Triumphant strategic communication must focus on both mass audiences and


specific target audiences. Certain media such as television, radio and the internet, as
well as press and public affairs operations, reach a wide public. However, public
diplomacy efforts are also aim at narrower, more discrete groups, especially those that
because of their expertise, stature, or leadership roles influence the decisions and
opinions of others. Opinion leaders in foreign cultures can be effective partners in
advancing our broader public diplomacy goals. We need to customize our public
diplomacy and communication programs to specific audiences, using the most
suitable and effective media available. Those specific audiences include:

I. Key Influencers

“Key Influencers” are those whose outlook can have a ripple effect throughout society.
They include clerics, educators, journalists, women leaders, business and labor
leaders, political leaders, scientists and military personnel. Our public diplomacy
programs and efforts should engage these key influencers, and especially persuade
and empower them to speak out against the forces of violent insurgencies and in favor
of peaceful resolution of disputes, tolerance and freedom.

II. Vulnerable Populations

Our public diplomacy and strategic communication must take into account
demographic characteristics of different societies, and focus especially on those
groups most vulnerable to extremist ideology:

Youth – A top public diplomacy priority should be reaching out to young people – the
voters, entrepreneurs, and leaders of tomorrow. Many of our traditional public
diplomacy programs, however, have not directly reached this demographic group,
which makes up more than 50% of populations elsewhere. We need to employ
education and exchange programs as well as Internet and other forms of
communication to reach this audience.

Women and Girls – Various researches have shown that when women are educated
and empowered, they become the most effectual agents of social change, progress
and prosperity. Improving the educational and economic prospects of women can
have a profound impact on overall social stability, economic development and human
rights. Educating women in developing countries helps improve overall family health,
decrease illiteracy and stabilize communities. Of the several million people who are
illeterate, more than two-thirds are women. Promoting education for women and girls
in these societies is critical to their long-term success and to the advancement of
liberty and opportunity.

Minorities – We need to extend to marginalized groups such as indigenous


populations, as well as racial and religious minorities who often do not have equal
educational or economic opportunities. AFP also has great expertise and experience
in helping develop opportunities for persons with disabilities; this should be shared
more widely with communities across the country.

III. Mass Audiences


SEMINAR ALPHA
12 | P a g e
With growing numbers of people across the world getting their news and
information primarily from television, Philippines must expand its presence on
international broadcasts. We are rapidly developing improved capabilities to employ
the power of Internet and other new technologies. Our government officials here and
abroad are engaging more actively than ever with foreign media, including television
and radio as well as print. Outreach through foreign media should be considered a
basic work requirement for government officials to the greatest extent possible. With
mass audiences worldwide now receiving much of their news via television, all
government officials should make appearances on television news and information
shows a special priority.

SEMINAR ALPHA
13 | P a g e
STRATCOM PRIORITIES

To achieve our mission, we have established the following priorities for strategic
communication for public diplomacy programs and activities:

• Expand education to far flung areas and localities

The government should continue its recent trend of increasing funding for education.
Educational programs should emphasize students (future leaders of society) and key
influencers in society (clerics, women, journalists, business, military and political
leaders) whose knowledge and experience can impact wider segments of society. The
impact of education should also be amplified through use of technology and media;
both government and private broadcasting should be invited and encouraged to
produce documentaries and news coverage of educational programs.

Agencies should also actively partner with the private sector to increase education
opportunities through internships, mentoring and education programs in cities where
they operate.

• Modernize communications

In an age when mass media, especially television, reaches mass audiences in a


unique way, government officials must significantly expand their presence and
appearances on media. Local officials should be the “voice” of our national
government as well as its official representative and should make regular
appearances on major media, explaining our policies, values and views. High ranking
officials, subject experts and employees with local tongue capabilities should be
identified, encouraged and rewarded for making appearances on local media.
Interviews and appearances on local media should be a priority, not an afterthought,
as part of popularity program by high ranking government officials. All agencies and
must also increase use of new technologies, including creative use of the internet,
web chats, blogs and video story-telling opportunities on the Internet to highlight
government good policies and programs.

• Promote and broadcast the “diplomacy of deeds”

Government’s deeds – providing health care, education, economic opportunity,


food and shelter, training for political participation, help after disasters – can
communicate our values and beliefs far more effectively than all of our words. Yet too
few people (including those in the local government) know the tremendous impact
they are making on lives around their locality every day, through government
programs, private and charitable programs, and the contributions of individual officials.
These programs should be continued and expanded, especially in the areas people
care most about: health, education and economic opportunity. Health and science
diplomacy (HIV/AIDs, malaria, avian influenza, military clinics, hospital ships, cancer
detection and awareness, natural disaster prevention and scientific discoveries) have
particular resonance and should be a priority for all local government and agencies
with health and science programs. All agencies and local government should make a
major commitment to more aggressively tell the story of how these programs are

helping people improve their lives and opportunities. Partnerships with the private
sector, foundations, and religious and charitable organizations should also be
encouraged through events to increase coordination and expand effectiveness and
visibility.

SEMINAR ALPHA
15 | P a g e
INTERAGENCY COORDINATION

The Coordinating Committee on Strategic Communication should be led by the


National Security Adviser by which we coordinate our public diplomacy across the
interagency community. To help accomplish our mission, such committee will establish
the following structures:

I. Counterterrorism Communications Center headquartered at the


Department of National Defense, with the core mission of developing messages and
strategies to discredit CPP/NPA/NDF (terrorists) and their ideology.

II. Interagency Crisis Communication Team

The National Security Council will initiate an interagency conference call


immediately upon major breaking news that might have an impact on our efforts
against violent extremism (CPP/NPA/NDF) to coordinate message points. Call
participants should include, at a minimum:

• Malacanang Communications Office

• NSC Senior Communications Director/Spokesman

• Malacanang Press Secretary

• Public Information Office

• Defense Department Public Affairs

Following the response decision, a conference call will be conducted with


public affairs and communication representatives from relevant agencies to refine and
coordinate unified messaging. The resulting message from the Counterterrorism
Communications Center and appropriate official statements will be relayed to Cabinet
secretaries, ambassadors and the military chain of command through the Crisis
Coordinating Council at the Department of National Defense.

III. Regular Monitoring of Implementation

The Strategic Communication Coordinating Committee will meet regularly to


review progress in implementing this communication strategy.

SEMINAR ALPHA
16 | P a g e
INITIAL COMMUNICATION ACTIVITIES

All segments of the Government have a role in public diplomacy and global
communication. To ensure that we maximize the overall effectiveness of the
Government to communicate with the local populace, each agency and local
government should:

I. Develop an agency-specific plan to implement the public diplomacy/strategic


communication objectives in this document.

Agency plans should:

• Identify two or three key programs/policies which the agency will highlight to
support the overall public diplomacy/strategic communication goals

• Identify target audiences

• Assign responsibility and outline specific plans for communicating key


programs and policies to the target audiences through speeches, foreign
travel, media interviews, etc.

• Identify:

➢ NGO and private sector partners with whom the agency works

➢ Subject matter experts who can explain and advocate government


policy

➢ Workers who speak local tongue and could translate/participate in


interviews

• Recommend envoys to advance public diplomacy efforts

• Outline current activities and programs that can be linked to support public
diplomacy

• Develop criteria to evaluate effectiveness

II. Basic Information Sharing

The Government should create an informational website for the government that
will focus on “Public Diplomacy Briefing Book” that will be available via internal
internet to update all government officials on regional and country-specific policies,
official statements and key messages. The briefing book should be a part of briefing
and preparation for all government officials prior to foreign travel so our messages are
clear and consistent. All agencies should also assist in collecting and transmitting
timely material to be featured on appropriate websites:

SEMINAR ALPHA
17 | P a g e
• Compelling stories (including pictures and videotape if possible) of how
government programs are impacting people’s lives. Interviews of those
receiving health care, barangay development and innovation, construction
of school buildings, hospitals and road, or participating in education
programs should be provided and featured on the government’s website like
for example “Government as a Partnership for a Better Life.

• A database of digital images and videos should be developed in conjunction


with search engine technology.

• Material should include quotes in print and on video that represent


mainstream views and rejection of CPP/NPA/NDF and other
terrorists/extremism.

• Best practices should be identified and shared through agency websites.

Audience Analysis: Understanding domestic and foreign public opinion is vital to


successful communication. The government should create a central repository of
information and analysis of public opinion in different countries so we can better
understand how citizens of other countries view us and what values and interests we
have in common. Such information is currently collected by a number of different
agencies (individual embassies and military attaches) as well as private sector
organizations. Accurate, up-to-date information should be housed in one central
location for interagency submissions and access. Information from this central
repository should be available to all senior government communicators, and to the
new Counterterrorism Communications Center, to help develop and monitor the
effectiveness of messages.

III. Proactive Media Booking

The government should create media hubs to support messaging and booking of
government officials to project national viewpoints.

SEMINAR ALPHA

NEEDED RESOURCES
Funding

Our government is engaged in a struggle of ideas and ideologies, both locally


and internationally, which requires a more extensive, sophisticated use of
communications and public diplomacy programs to gain support for Philippine
government policies here and abroad. To effectively wage this struggle, strategic
communication as well as public diplomacy must be treated – along with defense,
national security and intelligence – as a national security priority in terms of resources.
We must continue to significantly increase funding for all public diplomacy and
strategic communication programs, but, specifically, we need urgent funding for
priority programs such as country side development programs and education for
young people in strategic areas, science outreach projects, and new media outreach
to keep up with evolving audiences and technology. Increased support for StratComm
and Public Diplomacy programming is vitally important to confront today’s global
challenges and the threat that insurgency poses to free peoples everywhere.

Congressional approval of FY2010 supplemental funding for Strategic


Communication and public diplomacy is an important first step towards providing the
resources required for this effort. This supplemental funding will support priority
programs in key areas in the effort to counter violent extremism like CPP/NPA.

With the idea on hand, the estimate fund for overall projects is P2 Billion as
supplemental budget which is over and above the General appropriations (see next
page).

SEMINAR ALPHA
19 | P a g e
CONCLUSION

Strategic Communication is, at its core, about making Philippine diplomacy


public and communicating government’s views, values and policies in effective ways
to audiences here and abroad. Public diplomacy promotes linkages between our
people and the rest of the world by reminding diverse populations of our common
interests and values. Some of Filipino’s most effective public diplomacy is
communicated not through words but through our deeds, as we invest in people
through education, health care and the opportunity for greater economic and political
participation. Public diplomacy also seeks to isolate and marginalize extremists and
their ideology, particularly the CPP/NPA/NDF. In all these ways, public diplomacy is
“waging peace,” working to bring about conditions that lead to a better life for people,
both locally and internationally, make it more difficult for extremism to take root.

CHAPTER 3 - ACTION PLAN FOR STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

I. Our Government must present a positive image/foresight of hope and


opportunity for every Filipino that is entrenched in our most fundamental
values.

A. Seek opportunities to link programs and policies with Filipino’s values.

Sample Project:

1. Government sponsors scholarships for children of families in far flung areas


because we believe all children, boys and girls, are equal and equally
deserving of the right to an education to improve their prospects in life.

2. Government sponsors workshops on workers’ rights because we believe all


human beings are entitled to basic rights and fair treatment by their employers.

3. Government provides development and disaster assistance to respond to


human needs and suffering, regardless of culture, beliefs or nationality.

4. Government issues reports on human rights, religious freedom and


trafficking in persons because we believe all people everywhere should be able
to worship as they wish and no person anywhere should be sold into slavery.

5. Government is advocating greater freedom of expression and political


participation because we believe those are the rights of all people, everywhere.

6. Government is partnering with countries across the world to fight terrorism


because it threatens the right of all people everywhere to live in security and
peace.

B. Emphasize the diplomacy of deeds in all of government’s development and


disaster assistance.

Across the nation, government feeds the poor, educates the illiterate, cares for
the sick and responds to disasters. Yet often, the government engages in so many
different development projects that we get minimal recognition for any of them. Public
affairs staff should identify the one or two development programs with the most impact
and resonance in each specific locality and work to drive home the message.

Sample Project:

Eradicating epidemics like dengue and AH1N1 virus are top priorities in a
number of infected localities. While we participate in many other programs, we should
make sure every high-profile visitor, every national event; every communication from
government officials in these localities includes an update on our activities to wipe out
dengue and AH1N1 virus. New approaches should be developed to highlight
progress: a chart at the front door of the local government office posts the growing
number of lives saved; a regular radio update calls attention to milestones, the local
SEMINAR ALPHA
21 | P a g e
official devotes the first paragraph of every speech to a progress report on fighting
dengue and AH1N1 virus. The government needs to communicate in all we say and
do that our government is committed to partnering with people of each locality to wipe
out dengue and AH1N1 virus
.
1. Spotlight ways in which government assistance is helping real people
achieve better lives; collect and share success stories.

Sample Project:

Public affairs staff should videotape compelling stories from participants in


government programs (women in a literacy class who can now help their children with
homework, farmers who make more money because of the improved quality of their
crops and because of infrastructure projects like farm to market roads and irrigation
projects, girls who are attending school for the first time because of new school
buildings) and post them to appropriate web sites. A series of vignettes could be
collected on CD or shared in a podcast so they can be made available to local
teachers, the media, and others.

Highlight and suggest ways for media to “cover” exchange programs – perhaps
by partnering with a local radio or television station that interview participants regularly
or produce a documentary or news report. Philippine government broadcasting should
likewise be encouraged to cover government’s development assistance, education
and exchange programs with feature programs and interviews with recipients.

2. Use Personal Examples in Communication.

Sample Project:

• Speechwriters should incorporate appropriate personal anecdotes to


demonstrate Filipino’s core values in remarks given by officials.

• Encourage journalists to report stories of how government’s programs,


education and trade have benefited citizens and their families.

3. Establish plans for high-profile assistance in cases of major disaster


that include strategic communication and public diplomacy.

Sample Project:

Government and military response to major disasters should be immediate and


highly visible. Special priority should be placed on allowing press from the affected
locality and international media access to cover that assistance. When events are
catastrophic (tsunami, earthquake, flash floods), highly visible presidential-level,
private-sector teams should be recruited to raise private money and highlight the
government’s people’s generosity and support for those affected.

SEMINAR ALPHA
22 | P a g e
4. Facilitate contributions (coordinated by the government through
state.gov.ph website) from the Filipino people for specific disaster relief
opportunities.

C. Broaden the reach of strategic communication by including all government


officials, high-profile Filipinos, the business sector and the education sector.

1. All senior government officials should add at least one public


diplomacy event in every locality they visit when traveling on official business.

All Cabinet Secretaries should also participate in media interviews with foreign
media (not merely foreign-based correspondents, but foreign television, radio and
newspapers), and those media interviews should be strategically scheduled at the
front end of the travel schedule to have the maximum impact, not as an afterthought.

Sample Project:

• Appear on a highly rated television news or interview show

• Participate in a school program

• Visit a cultural site with local relevance

• Visit a health, science or education project the government is sponsoring


and highlight ways it is improving local lives

2. Designate and commission “Special Filipino Envoys” to help promote


Filipino values.

These high-level representatives would reflect the diversity of Filipinos, should


represent different fields (sports, health, science, music, acting) and could attract
substantial news coverage/interest overseas.

3. Engage more private sector partners.

Agencies and embassies should identify and reach out to institutions,


industries, foundations and private sector entities, especially those with a shared
interest in attracting people to military and improving military’s relations with people in
specific localities.

Sample Projects:

• Travel and Tourism Industry

• Higher Education Community

• Local Business and Labor Communities

• Build coalitions of private sector disaster response partners


SEMINAR ALPHA
23 | P a g e
• Local government should encourage companies with operations in their
area to provide internships, education programs and exchange
opportunities to help develop their work force and introduce more people to
peace; companies should be encouraged to partner with the local
government in sponsoring cultural and sports programs that foster
interaction and respect between cultures.

4. Encourage Filipino themselves to be citizen diplomats.

Sample Projects:

• Better links/information should be placed on Government web sites to help


citizens understand cultural differences and show respect for other cultures

• Filipino youth should be encouraged to learn critical languages

• Students should be encouraged to study world geography/history/culture

• Encourage Filipinos to donate to global relief efforts that reinforce


assistance programs.

• Evaluate and expand Department of Education partnerships in more


localities

II. ISOLATE AND UNDERMINE VIOLENT EXTREMISTS(CPP/NPA/NDF)

With our allies, we seek to segregate and marginalize vehement


extremists (CPP/NPA/NDF) who impend the freedom and peace sought by
civilized people of every nation, culture and faith.

The government needs to communicate more effectively, clearly and


consistently to rebut insurgents’/ terrorists’ propaganda and undermine extremist
ideology. To improve this effort, the government is in the process of establishing an
interagency “Counterterrorism Communications Center” working with the Department
of Interior and Local Government and Department of National Defense to develop
and deliver a proactive, coordinated government message. This command center will
have as its core function developing messages to undermine and marginalize
extremist ideology and propaganda. The Counterterrorism Communications Center
will also aggressively rebut and efficiently respond to actions and statements by
CPP/NPA groups and leaders across the nation. It will actively seek opportunities to
respond to breaking news, rebut negative messages and counter erroneous reporting.
Appropriate agencies will detail experts to help support the work of the center. The
center will be led by a Senior Service communication professional reporting directly to
the National Security Council; the deputy director will be a senior military officer from
the Department of Defense. Working sub-groups are currently examining different
aspects of the ideological struggle, including: terrorists’ use of the Internet, television
programming, publishing and alternative technologies. These working groups will
make ongoing recommendations to the Policy Coordinating Committee for action.

A. Place strategic focus on critical localities in the ideological war against


terror.

“Kalayaan Barangays” have been designated to more intensely concentrate our


public diplomacy efforts and resources in the ideological war through interagency-
coordinated and locality-specific plans that take advantage of all elements of national
power. Each pilot Kalayaan Barangays locality has written a plan outlining strategic
goals, target audiences, and the programs/means to reach those audiences to
undermine support for terrorism. They have proposed additional programs and
activities that will be implemented as funding becomes available. Their projects are
expected to facilitate best practices that can be applied more broadly to public
diplomacy in other areas.

B. Identify and engage key influencers whose views have a ripple effect
throughout society.

Such influencers include clerics, educators, journalists, physicians, women


leaders, business leaders, scientists, and military personnel. Every appropriate
diplomatic tool available should be used to nurture engagement, foster common
values and interests with these influential individuals and encourage them to speak
out against the extremists.

Sample Projects:

SEMINAR ALPHA
25 | P a g e
• Specialized exchange programs

• Academic and professional conferences

• Journalist workshops

• Embassy cultural events

• Military-to-military training and exchanges

1. Religious Leaders – The unique role of religion in the counter-insurgency


requires that greater efforts be made to engage in dialogue with the leaders of faith-
based communities. Moral and religious leaders such as clerics, imams, rabbis,
monks and priests can foster tolerance and mutual respect among religions and their
followers.

Government officials should seek opportunities to participate in events that


resonate with local populations, including visits to important religious and cultural sites
and hosting events such as Iftar dinners to demonstrate respect for different faiths.
Special efforts should be made by government officials to highlight mainstream
Muslim voices that condemn extremist violence.

Sample Projects:

• Quote mainstream voices in speeches or interviews

• Suggest individuals who condemn violence for media appearances

• Feature them in editorials/opinion pieces

• Feature them on government broadcasting programs

• Sponsor interfaith programs and conferences featuring a diversity of


mainstream voices.

• Encourage television programming on “faith matters” featuring guests


who offer mainstream views of different faiths.

• Encourage foundations/think tanks/NGOs/universities to include


mainstream views on Islam when sponsoring conferences and publishing
academic articles.

2. Youth Audience – Because they are a sustainable force and will play a role
for many years to come, more resources should be devoted to and specific outreach
plans developed for specific segments of the youth audience, including early, middle,
high school, university and young professionals.

SEMINAR ALPHA
26 | P a g e
Sample Projects:

• Sports diplomacy

• After school and summer youth enrichment programs

• Youth ambassador programs

• Pre-college counseling and exam prep

• Cultural performances and collaboration

• Broadcasts tailored to young people with a mix of music and news

• Greater use of emerging media such as podcasts, webzines, etc.

3. Women and Girls – Educating and empowering women and girls should be a
priority and programs should be significantly expanded.

Sample Projects:

• Establish women’s centers that include computer training and


democracy education

• Provide micro-finance grants and loans so women can start small in-
home businesses

• Offer literacy programs that include information on nutrition and health

• Sponsor business mentoring conferences and exchanges

• Increase efforts against trafficking in persons

4. Minority Groups – Special outreach should be directed to members of


minority groups and indigenous people who often do not have full access to education
and capital.

Sample Projects:

Scholarships are awarded to every student to promote the pursuit of higher


education.

C. Undermine violent extremism by fostering a climate of openness and respect


for religious diversity.

1. Support MILITARY-LOCALITIES efforts to be a “bridge” between Military and


Local communities nationwide.

SEMINAR ALPHA
27 | P a g e
Sample Projects:

• Send teams of CMO to local communities to engage in citizen dialogue.

• Sponsor “town hall meetings” between local communities and audiences


localities wide; suggest regular programs on government broadcasting.

• Encourage the development of documentaries, reality shows, soap


operas and other television shows that feature Local families living in the City.

D. Foster grassroots worldwide condemnation against terror; make suicide


bombing a matter of shame, not honor.

1. Encourage world leaders, especially leaders of diverse ideology and faith


communities, to state clearly that no cause, no complaint and no grievance can ever
justify the murder of innocents.

2. Cultivate partnerships with allied governments who are proactively engaged


in the war on terror. Strengthen efforts, share appropriate information and reinforce
themes to cooperatively and comprehensively respond. Host and attend workshops,
conferences and events to promote best practices and share ideas.

3. Highlight the human cost of terror. Where culturally appropriate, foster


awareness of the victims of terror and highlight the human loss inflicted on the families
and communities of victims.

Sample Projects:

• Encourage leaders of all faiths to speak out against suicide bombings;


explain it violates the tenets of all faiths, including Christianity, Islam and
Judaism.

• Encourage members of religious congregations to begin grassroots


movements against terror.

• Remind audiences that violent extremism is rejected by the vast majority of


population around the world.

• Remind audiences that the victims of terror are often innocent children and
women; they have come from more than 90 nations and many of them are
CPP/NPA/NDF.

E. Focus on the type of ideology and society the extremists want to impose on
others throughout the world, especially Islamic nations.

The CPP/NPA/NDF have stated on numerous occasions that their goal is to


create and impose a unified, COMMUNIST state on the proud and currently sovereign
nations of the Republic of the Philippines. The majority of civilized people do not want
to live in the type of society the violent extremists seek. The best example is the
SEMINAR ALPHA
28 | P a g e
society that was imposed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Books were burned, music
was banned; cultural icons were destroyed; girls were not allowed to go to school or
learn to read; and women were not allowed to work – even if their husbands had been
killed and they had no means of support. Freedom of expression and worship were
not allowed; in fact, faith practices were so strictly proscribed that men could be
punished if their beards were not the exact, appropriate length.

F. Confront Hate Speech.

Aggressively confront speech that encourages hate or incites violence and


inflames misunderstandings around the world.

Sample Projects:

• Encourage tolerance in textbooks.

• Work with UNESCO and other international organizations to condemn hate


speech and eliminate it from textbooks.

III. NURTURE AND PROJECT COMMON INTERESTS AND VALUES

Filipinos of different ideologies, cultures and faiths across the nation share many
common values and interests. We believe in the dignity and value of every human
being in the world. We respect the historical and cultural roots of other political and
social systems, even as we uphold the inalienable and fundamental human rights of
every human being. Emphasizing these common interests and values must be an
integral part of all government communications.

A. Each agency should identify and build on areas in which their


expertise/mandate corresponds with a common interest of the world.

Sample Projects:

Filipinos has a shared interest with the people of the world in protecting and
improving our environment. Through participation in international conferences,
interviews, and outreach programs, communicate government’s common interest in
improving our environment. Make sure all our officials frame their message by stating
that we want to partner with other countries in ways that advance our common interest
in improving the world’s environment.

B. Develop active, agency-specific alumni networks of current and former


official guests, speakers, professional exchanges and study programs as
resources for outreach.

Sample Projects:

• Cultivate long-term relationships with participants and encourage


collaboration on proposed initiatives to strengthen relationships.

SEMINAR ALPHA
29 | P a g e
• Encourage professional networking among individuals and share networks
with agencies engaged in parallel programs.

C. Greater focus should be placed on three major areas that human beings
nationwide care most about: health, education and economic opportunity.

1. Health

Further commit the government to working in partnership with localities to


eradicate preventable diseases. Convene conferences to focus/track progress and
publicize major initiatives and encourage greater collaboration between government
agencies and foundations, NGOs, health care organizations (doctors/ nurses/
hospitals/ pharmaceuticals) and religious congregations. Government health programs
that reinforce this goal include:

• President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief

• Dengue response

• AH1N1 programs and summit

• Health diplomacy and training of medical professionals

• Increased emphasis on maternal/infant mortality and immunization programs

• Efforts to improve water quality and supplies

• Military hospital ships, which are highly visible and should be deployed
strategically to support public diplomacy

Further partnerships should be developed, and medical and science diplomacy


envoys recruited to help champion government’s commitment to better health for the
Filipino people.

2. Education

Every effort should be made throughout the government to expand educational


programs nationwide, ranging from values teaching, teacher training, student, medical
and science education, literacy training of all types, and establishment of virtual
libraries. Recent efforts such as the creation of major new after-school and summer
English language training programs should be significantly expanded.

Sample Projects:

English language teaching offers youth a job-related skill and improves their
economic prospects, while opening a window to our shared values and the wider
world of information. By hosting summer and after-school programs, we can reach
young people in their own localities, before they are old enough to travel to capital
cities on exchange programs.

SEMINAR ALPHA
30 | P a g e
3. Economic Opportunity

Government’s support for micro-loans, job training, literacy and trade should be
highlighted as examples of government desire to improve prosperity for Filipino people
nationwide.

D. Expand private sector linkages.

Encourage international professional exchanges, ask companies to sponsor


internship opportunities and joint professional projects.

E. Sharing the best of Filipino culture mitigates negative images and


misunderstanding.

Foster private sector partnerships to significantly expand cultural, sports,


musical and artistic and scientific exchanges particularly in countries that supports
CPP/NPA/NDF ideologies like Netherlands and some Scandinavian Countries. Sports
activities forge a common bond and teach teamwork, discipline, respect for others and
abiding by rules. Art and culture are a shared language that taps into the range of
human emotions and reminds us of our common humanity. Shared arts and cultural
appreciation can help bridge political and policy differences.

Sample Projects:

• Global Cultural Initiative – Government will work with private sector partners
to enhance exchanges of art, film, dance and music and share expertise in arts
management.

• Netherlands and other Scandinavian countries Partnerships – Government


will help build public-private partnerships in science collaboration, focusing on
education, youth and women.

Hailer Publishing, 2005), 14. Galula was a Tunisian-born French army officer who fought in
the European theater during WWII and served in Algeria from 1956 to 1958. The book’s
foreword states that his counterinsurgency precepts are “drawn mainly on observations and
reflections derived from experience in China, Greece, Southeast Asia and Algeria.”
