Border Crossing Launch Sets the Tone.

On January 31st, we had the pleasure of meeting with some members of the staff of Diplomat Magazine Netherlands to celebrate the launch of our newest academic section, Border Crossing.

The event took place in the tea room of the elegant Chateau Laurier, one of Ottawa’s most renowned meeting places for visitors from around the world. It was the perfect backdrop to share a global vision of what Border Crossing will contribute to the diplomatic conversations happening in The Hague, and wherever else Diplomat Magazine may be read.

The tone of conversation was friendly, excited, and thoughtful, exactly the tone we hope to strike with our first edition. Conceived just a few months ago, Border Crossing has quickly grown from a recognized need for more scholarly participation to the reality of today’s launch. Our aspiration is as simple as it is ambitious: create a space for critical and profound conversation between diplomatic scholars and actors.

The difficulty has always been to weave together the countless conversations of diplomacy in politics, economics, arts, science, and culture into one coherent forum where ideas can be productively exchanged. Although only our first issue has been released, attendees caught a glimpse of how we hope to build this forum in the months to come. For our friends in Holland who weren’t able to attend, we hope you join the conversation by visiting us online ( and give us your thoughts as we embark on this exciting new chapter in diplomatic dialogue.
