The list of the magazine’s readers includes all Embassies located in Brussels, members of the European Parliament, the DGs of the European Commission, the European Council, Members of the Belgian Government, the Belgian Royal Family, and different Heads of State.
The Diplomatic World has wide coverage and can claim the status of a key diplomatic-journalistic media unit with an authoritative opinion.
Barbara Dietrich always communicates with top officials of Europe and the whole world in person when preparing articles for the magazine. She interviews ambassadors, ministers, European Comissioners, distinguished public figures, Prime Ministers, and Presidents of different countries.

The Diplomatic World carries out several international cultural projects focused on maintaining peace.

The doves are depicted on a thin layer of ancient mica. The author of this artwork is a Belgian-German artist Ulrike Bolenz. The Peace Doves became the symbol of peacekeeping activities, kindness, and friendship. By today, more than 130 people received such a meaningful present from Barbara Dietrich.

They both have similar life principles and values and see their mission in contributing to preservation of peace on the planet and creation of a better future for the rising generations. They started fruitful cooperation, one of its results was the Summit in Brussels.
According to Ms. Dietrich, the key goal of the Summer Peace Summit and P50 community lies in building horizontal communication among countries aimed at establishing long-time cooperation and warm friendly ties.
“Today, it is important for us to hear one another, understand how we can help people around, and unite our efforts. The Summer Peace Summit in Brussels is the beginning of a long common path”, she believes.
