The Diplomatic Post, our student-run journal on international affairs, is published three times per year and includes articles written by students, staff, and experts in the field.

Past volumes have featured articles from the British Ambassador to Norway and Professor Richard Toye, Head of History at the University of Exeter. Our most recent issue, on the topic of ‘crisis’, included contributions by Peter Penford, British High Commissioner to Sierra Leone (1997-2000), and David Landsman, UK Ambassador to Greece (2009-2013).
