Special features[edit]

The Top 99 Under 33[edit]

In the Summer 2011 issue, the Diplomatic Courier launched "The Top 99 Under 33" list,[20] listing the 99 most influential foreign policy professionals under 33. The Top 99 were chosen through an initial nominations process, and from there a board consisting of members of the networking group, Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP), and editors of The Diplomatic Courier chose the Top 99 and who to honor as the Top 9.[21] In 2012 and 2013, the "Diplomatic Courier" continued the lists, each time choosing candidates from an open nominations process.

In 2012, the list was divided into 7 categories:[22]

  • Catalysts—from a field not typically associated with foreign policy who has had an impact on international affairs.
  • Conveners—bring people together in creative ways to address a pressing international issue or enhance the foreign policy community.
  • Influencers—mobilize people in the foreign policy community with bold new ideas.
  • Innovators—design a new solution to a critical global challenge.
  • Practitioners—change foreign policy from the inside through extraordinary professionalism and skill.
  • Risk-takers—take a chance and see it pay off.
  • Shapers—change the public discourse on an aspect of foreign policy or raise awareness on a critical issue.

Honorees include:

Global Go-To Think Tanks of 2011[edit]

In the January 2012 issue, the Diplomatic Courier partnered with the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) to produce the 2011 Global Go-To Think Tank Report, launching the report at the National Press Club (USA).[35] The approach of James McGann, director of the TTCSP, to the study and assessment of think tanks has been criticised by think tank researchers such as Enrique Mendizabal and Goran Buldioski, Director of the Think Tank Fund, supported by the Open Society Institute.[36][37]
