The Diplomatic institute "opens its doors" by organizing regular meetings where the team of the Institute invites to its premises or visits various universities and organizations.
My participation in the Basic Course in Diplomacy and my successful completion of it allowed me to acquire my first diplomatic rank, i.e.
it gave me the opportunity to join the Bulgarian diplomatic service.
As of 2013 the Institute also holds national contests for applied research projects.
Among our publications, in Bulgarian and/or English, are the Foreign Policy Research Papers series, the Energy Diplomacy collection, books and textbooks on EU matters, security and environment issues, diplomatic skills and practice, as well as the long-established Diplomacy Journal which has already grown into an online platform for foreign policy analysis and research.
It is my determination that in the coming years we will firmly establish ourselves as a supporting factor for the Bulgarian Diplomatic Service and for Bulgarian Foreign Policy in enhancing the prestige of Bulgaria both at home and abroad.
