Published since 1948, Studia Diplomatica, the long-standing journal of Egmont – The Royal Institute for International Relations (Belgium), enjoys a worldwide distribution. Egmont has established itself as a leading actor in the bustling Brussels think-tank scene, undertaking policy-oriented research. Under its subtitle The Brussels Journal of International Relations, the aim of Studia Diplomatica is to offer a quarterly platform to this dynamic Brussels research and policy scene, bringing together insights and expertise from academics, think tanks and practitioners around the globe. Its mission is to be a peer-reviewed publication of policy-oriented scientific articles.
The journal welcomes article submissions, by academics and practitioners, on all aspects of international relations, including political, legal and economic perspectives, but retains a particular focus on the process of European integration, on the role of the EU as a global actor, and on Africa. Aiming at an audience of policy-makers, NGOs, and think tanks as well as academia, articles must be policy-oriented, combining theoretical frameworks and depth of analysis with innovative recommendations and thinking ‘out of the box’.
