Global Diplomacy serves as a platform for researching, communicating, and discussing international relations and geopolitics topics.
The Plot Journal is our digital publication featuring data stories and explainers to understand the world. We are firm believers in slow journalism: we provide in-depth analysis with a global approach.
We run The Plot Journal (and Global Diplomacy) through subscriptions and through our research and communication studio that provides services and training to our clients. Supporting (or hiring) us allows The Plot Journal (and Global Diplomacy) to continue existing.
