Welcome to the 2017 Lowy Institute Global Diplomacy Index. Now extending to 60 countries in total, the Index maps and ranks the world’s most significant diplomatic networks, adding 17 Asian nations in 2017 as well as updating the networks of all G20 and OECD nations. View and compare the extent and reach of these diplomatic networks, see where nations are represented - by city, country, and type of diplomatic mission - and rank countries according to the size of their diplomatic networks.
