In practice, cultural diplomacy is implemented through different types of actors. Diplomatic missions can be considered the most important ones of them, but also cultural institutes play a vital role. They may have diplomatic or non-diplomatic status. Based on the types of actors that are substantially involved in the exercise of cultural diplomacy as well as on their number and the nature of interactions between them, various organizational models of the cultural diplomacy can be distinguished in different states. For example, a typical feature of the organizational model of the cultural diplomacy in the French Republic and the Slovak Republic is the fact that most of the cultural-diplomatic activities are conducted by diplomatic organs. By contrast, greater involvement of non-diplomatic... entities is an inherent part of the model of cultural diplomacy in the Federal Republic of Germany.
