The Public Diplomacy Award was created by the Diplomat Magazine and first launched in the presence of ambassadors and noted international relations researchers on 24 June 2016 in The Hague. The inaugural award was bestowed upon H.E. Gabriel Edgardo Aguilera, Ambassador of Guatemala, in a ceremony at the Carlton Ambassador Hotel in The Hague. The Ambassador was commended for his extraordinary engagements with Dutch civil society, and the instigation of successful foreign cultural programmes in the Netherlands. The award was presented jointly by Elizabeth Naumczyk of Diplomat Magazine; Olivier Ribbelink, Senior Researcher at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut and Associate Professor at Utrecht University, School of Law and Hilde Cadenau, LL.M, Programme Director of the International and European Law Bachelor Programme of The Hague University.
Starting in 2019 the award will be continued internationally in a joint effort of Diplomat Magazine and the Diplomatic Council.
Dr. Mayelinne der Lara, Publisher of the Diplomat Magazine, says: “We are happy to work closely with one of the world´s most powerful think tanks in consultative status with the United Nations that connects diplomacy and economy.”
Diplomatic Council Secretary General Hang Nguyen says: “We are proud to cooperate with one of the world’s fastest growing diplomatic magazines created and run by diplomats.”
The Diplomat Magazine has been the very first diplomatic magazine in the Netherland´s history, launched by the diplomatic corps of the Hague in 2013. Since then it has grown to cover the entire Benelux region and is nowadays the fastest growing publication of its kind in the European Union and a top international diplomatic events organizer. The Diplomat Magazine is now going global following a strategic cooperation with the Diplomatic Council and an agreement with Dow Jones that will see more than one and a half million people have direct access to its content and archives. Members of the Diplomatic Council are invited to join the events regularly organized by the Diplomat Magazine.
