Global Diplomacy is a forum for research, debate, and communication about international relations.
The Plot Journal is our digital publication featuring articles, essays, and explainers produced by international relations analysts. We are firm believers in slow journalism: we provide in-depth analysis with a global approach.
We run Global Diplomacy through subscriptions and our research and communications studio providing consulting services and training to our clients. Supporting (or hiring) us allows The Plot Journal (and Global Diplomacy) to continue existing.
