About this site

The Plot Journal is an independent publication launched in December 2022 by Global Diplomacy, a platform for those interested in understanding the world through research, data, and stories.

This digital publication features articles, essays, visual summaries, and explainers produced by international relations and geopolitical analysts. We are firm believers in slow journalism: we provide in-depth analysis with a global approach.

We run Global Diplomacy through our research and communications studio providing services and training to our clients and through subscriptions. Most of our content and resources are free, but we also provide exclusive benefits to our subscribers. Supporting (or hiring) us allows The Plot Journal (and Global Diplomacy) to continue to exist.
