IJDipE is the first international journal devoted entirely to fostering/understanding issues interconnecting diplomacy and economy. Although diplomats state that they occupy more than 60% of their time with economic-related issues, economic diplomacy was/is often neglected. There have been huge changes in the field of diplomacy (globalisation, regionalisation, internet, social networks, new entrants in international field, e.g. NGOs, MNCs, etc.), belying the stereotype that diplomacy is old-fashioned. One constant has always been at the core of diplomacy ľ economy.
