They have important conditions before they submit their inputs to us:


We already reached (up to January, 2016) +70,000 monthly readers and followers Online (85% from the Netherlands only) and increasing top level  followers in the Netherlands and abroad.  Everyone has free access to Diplomat Magazine. We are now selected as the diplomatic media to enhance and support the new “Public Diplomacy Award” of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. 

We are more than a standard publication, we are a top diplomatic event organizer in the Netherlands and the fastest growing diplomatic magazine in Europe.

This is how everything started in June, 2013:

This subscription-free monthly-Online non-profit magazine in The Netherlands is available to Diplomats, Dutch Government officials and the public in general. With a friendly-user design, Diplomat Magazine is unique, the first of its kind in Dutch diplomatic  history, and the only official diplomatic publication in the Netherlands. Our contributing writers and staff consist of ambassadors, dignitaries, members of Parliament, professors from recognized universities, International relations researchers, and the like.

Likewise, Diplomat Magazine has its printed-luxury edition since early November 2014, with free distribution to the diplomatic corps, international organizations, ministries and related stakeholders.

Editorial, ambassadorial and academic articles are published Online the first Sunday of the month. They are the top five ambassadorial articles. “Diplomatic news” is a daily section. “Diplomatic pouch” together with our ambassadorial articles are published the first Sunday of the month. However, all other Online sections, like our “Breaking news”, “Upcoming events”  and our very successful “Recent events”  are updated on daily basis. With lesser extension, some other sections can receive new inputs on weekly basis, such as our “Travel”, “Culture & events”, and our “Business” sections.

It is not a coincidence that Diplomat Magazine was born on June 2013. We paid special attention to make it happen the year of Investiture of His Majesty, King Willem-Alexander and during the centennial celebrations of the Carnegie Foundation, which we fully supported.

Moreover, since February, 2015, Diplomat Magazine has added to its diplomatic  repertoire a new high level academic publication called Border Crossing. It is a complimentary Online magazine that can be found at the top-menu of our Home-page Online

Diplomat Magazine is the conception of top Dutch ICT-designer professionals and the volunteer action from international relations researchers, the academia, foreign affairs experts, local NGOs, diplomatic ministers, selected Dutch voluntary journalists, professional photographers, Dutch and international lawyers, notaries, public servants, fine arts gurus, and last but not least, the honorary and kind-heatedly participation of ambassadors and  senior diplomats accredited to The Kingdom of the Netherlands and abroad. As per Dr. Eugenio Matos Gomez, Minister Counselor-Charge d’affaires of the Dominican Republic Embassy in The Hague, co-founder and the eminence grise of Diplomat Magazine as a project, he invited and allowed non diplomats Dutch citizens to occupy some positions as volunteer staff of the magazine, offering them the opportunity to familiarize and develop their personal assets within the diplomatic corps.
