Public and cultural diplomacy are essential aspects of international relations, playing a pivotal role in shaping perceptions, building bridges between nations, and fostering mutual understanding. These practices involve the strategic communication and promotion of a country's culture, values, and policies on the global stage, with the primary objective of enhancing bilateral and multilateral relationships. Accordingly, the overarching goal of this interdisciplinary research is to analyze the practice of public and cultural diplomacy of five foreign Consulate Generals (CGs) in Bali, namely, the CG of Australia, Japan, India, the People’s Republic of China, and the Republic of Korea. This research combines the interdisciplinary concepts derived from empirical International Relations and legal studies. The first part of this study analyzes the legal basis, if any, for CGs in performing public and cultural diplomacy. To connect both disciplines, a qualitative empirical approach is used in this research as the methodology. The implementation of public and cultural diplomacy is assessed by using literature studies from International Relations journals, official websites, online news media, and official social media accounts. The results of this research proved that (i) all foreign CGs analyzed in this paper have conducted their public and cultural diplomacy practices in Bali; (ii) the practice of public diplomacy practices has covered news management, strategic communication, and relationship building aspects by utilizing digital technology such as official websites and social media accounts; and (iii) the cultural element has been highlighted by all CGs to build relations with Balinese people.
