About us

The Plot Journal is an independent publication launched in January 2023 by Global Diplomacy, a forum for research, debate, and communication about international relations.

This digital publication features 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 The Plot Journal (and Global Diplomacy) through subscriptions and our research and communications studio providing services and training to our clients. Supporting (or hiring) us allows The Plot Journal (and Global Diplomacy) to continue existing.
