The Hague Journal of Diplomacy

Editor-in-Chief: Jan Melissen
The Hague Journal of Diplomacy (HJD) is the world’s leading research journal for the study of diplomacy. It publishes research on the theory, practice, processes and outcomes of diplomacy in both its traditional state-based forms, as well as contemporary diplomatic expressions practiced by states and non-state entities. Each issue aims at a balance between theoretical and empirical studies and usually features one practitioner’s essay.

A central aim of the journal is to present work from a variety of intellectual traditions. Diplomatic studies is an interdisciplinary field, including contributions from international relations, history, law, sociology, economics, and philosophy. HJD is receptive to a wide array of methodologies.
