Welcome to our first edition

Must read

DIPLOMAT MAGAZINE “For diplomats, by diplomats” Reaching out the world from the European Union First diplomatic publication based in The Netherlands Founded by members of the diplomatic corps on June 19th, 2013. Diplomat Magazine is inspiring diplomats, civil servants and academics to contribute to a free flow of ideas through an extremely rich diplomatic life, full of exclusive events and cultural exchanges, as well as by exposing profound ideas and political debates in our printed and online editions.

By Bonnie Klap.

Within the short time span  of just a few  months three important events have taken place or are about to take place in The Netherlands. First of all, on April 30  the Coronation of the new Dutch King Willem-Alexander took place. He  succeeded his Mother, Queen Beatrix,  to the throne,  after her 33 years of reign. In August, on the 28th to be exact, the world famous icon of Peace and Justice, the Peace Palace in The Hague, will celebrate its centennial anniversary. And last but certainly not least, I would like to present to you the very first edition of the Diplomat Magazine of  The Hague. The Hague is known as the International City of Peace and Justice. It is  not only the  home to the Diplomatic Corps, but it also has 131 International Institutions and Organizations.

Moreover, and perhaps unknown to many, The Hague is the United Nations’ second city only after New York. Hence it is obvious that, considering the high number of Diplomats and the thousands of people working toward world peace in The Hague, introducing the Diplomat  Magazine will almost certainly fill a need. In several major  cities such as London, Paris, Berlin and Ottawa, to name a few,  a Diplomat  Magazine has been available for some time and with good reason! It is a well known fact that Diplomats are very busy people, but at the same time, they  want to stay informed in a convenient and efficient manner.

From now on that information, be it local news, entertainment, interviews, events,   leisure or entertainment suggestions  are just a mouse-click away.   Speak to any Diplomat posted in The Hague and they will praise the international flavor of The Hague. What better way is there to improve their impression of this vibrant and cosmopolitan city than to keep them up-to-date on everything newsworthy for the Diplomatic Community by reading the Diplomat  Magazine?

What’s more, in this era of speedy, accessable information, the Diplomat  Magazine of The Hague is a welcome addition to the list of “Favorites” to click onto on your  computer.  I hope and expect that  the Diplomat  Magazine of The Hague  will from now on   provide you with all the news you require  and will make living and working for the Diplomatic Community here an  even more interesting and pleasant experience.
