Administrative history

The NATO Information Service was established by Council resolution on May 18, 1950, in order “to promote and coordinate public information in furtherance of the objectives of the Treaty, while leaving responsibility for national programmes to each country.” The Information Service first operated from London to provide public relations services for NATO and the newly formed international staff. In 1957, the Information Service was put under the Political Affairs Division, where it remained until 1990, when it split off to become the Office of Information and Press. The Information Service was renamed and restructured as the Public Diplomacy Division (PDD) in March 31st, 2003.
