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.

Diplomacy and Foreign Affairs.

On 12 December, the Egmont Institute in Brussels will be the venue of a seminar on Multinational Corporations in a Geopolitically Dynamic World: How to Shape Business Diplomacy Competencies in Practice. The seminar is co-organized by the Clingendael Institute, Ghent University, and Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, and co-sponsored by Aramco Overseas Company.* It builds on the findings of a special issue on Business Diplomacy of The Hague Journal of Diplomacy (2014:4).

This seminar will bring together businessmen, other practitioners and experts to deepen the understanding of how MNCs can shape Business Diplomacy competencies. Geopolitical change demands a move away from a shareholders perspective to a stakeholders approach. Firms are no governments, but they need executives with skill sets similar to those of effective diplomats. By adopting a more ‘diplomatic mind set’, companies will be able to manage ever-expanding international geopolitical risks, safeguard profit-making and secure their existence in the long haul.
